So after Baby disappeared/died, I had a hard time going out and sitting out with the chickens, I missed having someone that would run up to me and try to jump into my arms. But I still loved them.
One of the EE chicks caught my eye because A) She was just Pretty, B) She was most likely KD's daughter and C) She layed blue eggs!
|A day of laying|
Even though we where there to teach the kids about chickens, the adults were fascinated by chickens! Several made the comment "I've never been this close to a chicken before!.......at least a live one." One woman was very excited when I let her hold KD and took several pictures with her.
While we telling them about egg color, hatching and just about anything about chickens, one of the the kids said "Egg!" we were showing them eggs at the time so we thought nothing of it. Until I glanced in George and Betty's cage and a brown egg was sitting on the floor! I went and grabbed it and started to show the kids that it was warm. Later in the day Grey started to fuss and try to get away, it took me a minute then it clicked! She wants some privacy to lay an egg! So I put a shoe box in and she jumped in and sat, and a few minutes later we had another egg (a blue one) to show the kids.
So I'll stop here for today and try to continue soon!
