This shows the color-- a lovely seafoam green.
This afternoon I decided to give Gertrude and Victoria, the two hens, nice clean hay, deserving chickens that they are. Hay has a nice sweet aroma, and probably some seeds, while straw is stems only, so, it's hay. Low and behold I found two more eggs. Probably the first one I found was from the day before, since I hadn't checked. They look white here, but aren't.
I bought the chickens, on September 5, 2013, they were probably two or three days old when I bought them, and now 7 months later they are grown up laying hens.
The light-colored chick turned out to be a rooster--verboten in town--so he was adopted by a wonderful woman who lives outside the city limits.
She calls him the "Wonder rooster," for his is holding his own with her resident rooster.
This is Gertrude or Victoria, I can't tell which.
Since I had the camera in hand the morning of the found egg, I snapped this daffodil growing by our foundation. Quite a juxtaposition from 2 months ago.
