Aren't Eggs Beautiful?

I think eggs are serenely lovely.
I couldn't decide which picture I like best so I posted all.








My chickens are giving us 15 to 20 eggs a day. My girls sell them for $3.00 a dozen to friends and family. This pays for the feed and gives the girls a little spending money. I am letting them handle the "business" end of this and they are having a blast.

I like the first one and the second to the last one because they are close-ups. :) They really are pretty! The variations in the colors are what makes them pretty I think.

They are beautiful. I love the close-up ones cause they're in-your-face. They remind the eggs we collected when we were children. Although I do not eat eggs, I always admire brown eggs.

Covet Covet. For seven years we have lived in a very rural spacious development in a "right to farm" community, however our little development has a rule (that I signed) that you can only have pet animals not livestock. I never thought I'd want to have chickens, but now I do. Seven years can change your world. Do you HAVE to have roosters? I've been contemplating going to neighbors to ask for permission, but don't think a crowing rooster would go over well with reluctant neighbors at 5am -- like we experienced when we visited my husband's aunt and uncle in rural Portugal. Your eggs are beautiful. I like the first picture best. -Sandy

Your eggs are beautiful.... especially on my breakfast plate! Tell your girls that Eloise loved her blue-ish egg. She jumped out of bed and ran straight to the fridge and begged me to cook the VERY SPECIAL EGG THAT THE GIRLS PICKED OUT JUST FOR HER!!!!! She insisted that it was the best tasting egg ever.

Sandy, I have two brown leghorn roosters and one barred rock rooster (I'd like to hatch chicks). Roosters are VERY noisey and mean, but maybe your neighbors wouldn't mind a sweet hen or two. You could try bribing them with fresh eggs!

I think they are beautiful as well. I love the shots of them....but especially the close ups.
