Eggs and Day Dreams
Our eggs are small to medium, and pale, like coffee swirling with cream.
The eggs we brought home from Coral Tree Farm were jumbo, and the colors of the sea, milk chocolate, cinnamon, nutmeg. All of them were delicious.
Some days we have as many as seven eggs, and some days we only find one or two. Zelda is still broody and sits on all, a few, or none... but in the nest she remains. And sometimes, walking around the yard we find their secret nest... a place in the high grass, or beneath a shady shrub, where the chicas have made a stash of eggs. It is a strange, funny egg hunt.
We are moving beyond the planning stages, and into groundbreaking, for our barn and chicken yard. Hmmmm... do you suppose there is a party in store, for the completion of our venture? A barn raising party? A barn dance?
