It’s been a crazy winter-into-spring transition, with afternoons in February warm enough to cause leaves to pop, and yet enough freezing-at-night temperatures to keep us waiting to transplant our seedlings into the garden until yesterday.
Even the chickens are feeling it.
Eventually our hearts were so pained for her that we decided to try to help her be a mama.
And, I figured, if we were going to put some eggs under her, they may as well be eggs that would hatch into chickens that I was already day-dreaming of adding to our tiny flock.
Specifically French Black Copper Marans and French Blue Copper Marans. (Both lay a dreamy chocolate-colored brown egg.) We also thought it would be fun to add another blue-egg layer, because why not, so we ordered six hatching eggs: two Black Copper Marans, two Blue Copper Marans and two Crested Cream Legbars.
We can’t wait to see what other wonders you have in store.
