Looks like I need to step up my egg collecting a... frozen solid! #fivemaryseggs#itscoldhere (PS this is a slight exaggeration ;) I left these in my basket outside overnight. Hopefully the ones in the cozy nesting boxes on hay and possibly under a warm chicken body don't meet the same fate.) ❄️🐣 (PPS. I know I have huge gorilla hands 🐒🙈)
All shapes and sizes today! I found these two eggs on the bottom in a new spot a few of the chickens have started laying by the house - they are this beautiful shade of hazel with a green stripe around the top!! Both of them identical, I've never seen anything like it. 😍 I think they are from an "olive egger" hen or a new cross - since our chickens are totally free range they can naturally cross between unique breeds and some of our baby chicks that grow up into egg laying hens have had really unusual egg colors this year. Perfectly natural Easter eggs without even needing those natural dyes huh!? #fivemaryseggs#freerangechickens#allnatural#pasturedeverything#fivemarysfarms#fedexgrant PS we will be selling eggs in the Bay Area/Menlo Park on Saturday 10am to noon if you want some of these beauties!
