WOW! And well timed…

DSCF0748 It finally happened!  We had our first eggs from “the girls.”  Hubby went out the other day and said they probably laid them either the 4th or 5th---how nice they thought of me on my birthday!  Quite the gift!  So, this morning, we had omelets for breakfast.  They were very rich and colorful but on the small side. DSCF0750 Don’t know if all of them are laying or just a few.  Hard to tell.  We’ll be keeping a closer eye on them to find out.  The Orpingtons (the buff colored ones) are way bigger---almost larger than Charlie---so I’m thinking their eggs will be larger too.  They are a beautiful light tan shade in color and the yolks are quite orange. 

DSCF0747 As many of you may have noticed on my FB page, I put a video of Max’sDSCF0733_1 performance with the KHS Jazz Band this past Saturday. DSCF0739 (He’s the one on the far left side, behind the band)  Although he only got to play one number this time, it was well done.  Hopefully he’ll be able to play more often as the year progresses.  In his regular band class, he is the ONLY bass, so he gets plenty of playing time there.  All in all, it was a fun day by the lake.DSCF0740

Hope you all are enjoying this cooler Autumn weather and that your leaves are changing colors---ours are slowly getting there, but not spectacular yet.

I spent one summer with my grandparents in Ohio when I was growing up. They had a large chicken coop as well as a huge garden. Eggs, vegetables and even chicken seemed to taste so much better that summer and it wasn't just my grandma's cooking. Even raw vegetables tasted better.

Eggs!! YAY.. you are quite the farmer now. are ya going into business?? ehehhhe FRESH produce and eggs go for a lot here.. maybe the other chickens will start and you will have a little side business going on. Fresh eggs have a better shelf life I think than the ones in the stores. Good luck with them.. : )
