Our first Dozen

8 Mar

We’ve identified the layer. We caught her in the act yesterday:

She’s definitely one of the cross-breeds, and P thinks she’s the one he calls Fricassee.

And what an act it was.

65 grams! I struggled to close the egg carton.

We now have our first dozen eggs, and we’re having eggs on toast tonight…

      She is quite friendly too 🙂 She and her friend Kiev are my husband’s favourites. He’s quite sweet with them, but not sweet enough not to name them after chicken dishes…

    Very exciting. I am going to draw up plans for a hen house this weekend and then one day all this excitement may be mine too.

    Congrats on the first of many dozens. We love eggs here too, that might be because it’s the only thing Mr Good can cook if he’s in charge of dinner for the girls. Well that was until tonight when he hit the jackpot giving Miss Two a peanut butter, jam and sultana sandwich (which is exactly what she asked for). She ate two of them in record time, usually she manages only half a sandwich. Pity about the nutritional value, though it must be better than a Happy Meal mustn’t it?

    I am going to sound childish – ‘ i want chickens’. I am so envious of all this lovely egg and chicken talk. Enjoy your cackleberries!

    Kiev is a great name for a chook!

    We are thinking ‘Benedict’ (I know, a boy name but oh well) if we add to our girls. We have a Bacon, Nicoal (she’s black), Snow White, Combless/Comby (doesn’t have much of a comb), Spots and not long ago lost Stripey.

    Congrats on this dozen and may there be many more to come 🙂
