Today is my sweet friend Terra @ktandsonfarm 's birthday. I teased her this morning that I would be posting something today to throw her under the bus but the truth is, I want to share a story that makes me look like a total chicken newbie (cause I am). I often send her photos of things that are strange, much like the eggs I'm sharing in this post. She actually had me convinced that my precious pullet had chicken herpes and that I should immediately wash my hands; I didn't handle the egg WITHOUT gloves did I? 😱 and then didn't return my panicked text for several minutes (an eternity, I know!) In that time I had a proper meltdown and was preparing to inform my daughter that we would have to cull the whole flock (and other unstable notions). When she did FINALLY return my message she thought she was hysterical and after I got over the shock we had a great laugh. The 2nd olive egg was laid the other day and I informed her that I was now handling all such eggs geared up in a full bee suit. 😂 I am so thankful for the "expertise" and crazy chicken lady guidance of my pal even though she's super bratty. Make sure you wish her a happy birthday IG style (29 only comes along once, well, legit 😉) .
