30 days of blogging, day 2

My chickens are laying again! Well, the one mature one is laying again. The eggs stopped coming when the days got shorter in early November, but for the past 3 days I’ve gotten an egg a day from good old Minerva. There’s something so satisfying about picking up a warm, fresh egg from a comfy nest of straw and having it warm your palm as you carry it to the house through – 20°C weather.

I love my backyard chickens. I can’t wait to get that first blue egg and that first green egg from two of my other colourful laying breeds. It will be a colourful Easter, without the food colouring!
