Eggs Emerge Everywhere, Enough for Everyone!!
Eggs! We finally have eggs! Now that winter is here, and there isn't anything else to do, the chickens began laying, and show no signs of stopping. We get blue, brown and white eggs, and very cool feathers too. They (the eggs) taste soooo good. I think that I will make a series of quilts featuring each chicken, they have such individual quirky personalities. Oh and we have decided as a family that these are *pets* and will not be eaten if they pass on into that henhouse in the sky. Colour me squeamish, I don't care. But I couldn't eat my dog or cat either, they are pets, that happen to produce something useful and edible (unlike cat or dog hair, ahem)
