Arent' they beautiful? I just love having chickens and fresh eggs everyday. How did I live so long without them?? I get this sense of satisfaction when I walk through the grocery store knowing that I don't have to stop for eggs. For those of you who don't know, I have four hens and one turkey. That white speckled egg above is in fact a turkey egg. Who would have known, right?? This morning I went down to check on the girls and a hen and the turkey were not out. So I checked the first two laying box thinking the hen would be in one of them, but she wasn't. So I opened the last box (my husband built me this really cool chicken coop and you can either walk into it or check the boxes from the outside so you don't have to go in) and there I found the turkey sitting on the hen! It was quite a sight. Now I'm wishing I would have had my camera with me. Note to self: start carrying camera everywhere. Happy Monday!
