I'm joining in on Tuesday's Show & Tail at Angela's West Virginia's Treasures. If you have a cute story and picture of a pet, or any furry (or non-furry) friend, you are welcome to join in! Please check out the rules at her blog, and WELCOME!
Been so busy working on the Hen House for display at the County Fair, but still the daily chores must be done. This morning the girls needed housekeeping, and while I was "changing the sheets", I collected several eggs. Just look at the variety of color!
I love the deep chocolate brown of the Cuckoo Marans eggs. Some of the customers adore the blue eggs, even saving them till last to enjoy the unusual color. One of my customers believes the blue eggs are oxygen deprived, and prefers the brown or tan eggs! Oxygen deprived??? NOT TRUE!
"Easter-egger" hens lay the blue, green, or pink eggs; each separate color is particular to one hen. They taste the same as all the other color eggs - no difference. And the brown eggs are not "color fast" until they've been exposed to air for an hour or two. Up until that point, the color can be wiped off! So fascinating, and there is much more to be learned!
