I cannot believe I've failed to mention some very exciting news for the Thomas Homestead...
Thelma and Louise are officially earning their keep!
Our Easter Egger was the first to produce her golden yolked beauties;
We couldn't have hoped for a more beautiful shade of blue. When our nephew Ryder first saw our homegrown eggs over a year ago, he didn't realize a chicken could lay anything other than a white egg and thought we had dyed them!
But, those were Sally and Peg's eggs...RIP.
These new gals are laying steadily (one egg a day per hen even in these frigid temps)
There is nothing like a farm fresh egg, especially when it comes from your own backyard.
