Finally six months later

Remember back in late June when I had nine of twelve baby chicks hatch from green eggs??

Summer hatch -nine out of twelve and they're adorable.They're hatched from green eggs.

Well, I just got back from the henhouse and I am thrilled.  Finally after six months, the little pips have grown into full grown hens and I got my first green egg from one of them.  I can only hope that the other five of the hens will start laying too.  I kept two of their brothers and one brother went in the freezer.  I was really beginning to think there were not going to produce.  Here’s what I got from the nests a few minutes ago.

green, white, brown, pink, we have them all!

It’s somewhat smaller than the rest but that’s normal for the first few eggs.  They will be larger as time goes on.  I’m one happy farmer today!!  I hope she was as happy as I am.  🙂

  1. I can’t see the pictures either. I checked your posts back to Dec. 28 and out of all of the photos, I can see two (but not all three) on the post about Roxy and the pics of Christmas gifts from your family. Maybe it’s the type or size of the photo files? I hope you figure it out because I really want to see those green eggs! They sound awesome!


  2. Green eggs to go with the ham you posted about recently. Dr. Seuss would be proud! 🙂


  3. Your first picture is missing for me as well. Congrats on your first green egg!


  4. So happy for you… 🙂
    FYI- the photos are not coming though that I can see.
