chicken update

well, the day has come. our rooster, mr. handsome man (from the juicer attachment fame), has been officially carted off to the farm. but when i say 'the farm' i really mean 'the farm'. it is not a sneaky euphemism for death (like my childhood kittens). he was getting out of control. the kids were afraid to go in the backyard to play, and come on, this momma needs some backyard time! so the gracious jenny made a spot for him. i'm sure he's happier there....i'm sure of it!

the girls have started laying again- hooray! they have been molting, but the bantams started up production 2 days ago. so again, the eggs are tiny, but mighty tasty!







tinted eggs (what i'm not getting right now!)
