Eggs!

My fellow choir member Mary runs a farm, and she regularly offers eggs to fellow choir members. Today I brought home two dozen. She has a variety of chickens, hence the variety of egg colors.

Did you know that the color of egg depends on the variety of hen that lays it? My absolute favorite is the pretty blue-green egg laid by the Ameraucana. (There is no difference in taste, though!)

 Today she brought me a rainbow of eggs -- blue, blue/green, white, brown, pinkish-brown.

Thanks, Mary!

  1. Great natural Easter eggs year-around. The colored eggs makes one just want to bake-up something so the eggs can be used. Sort of like fabric for quilting.

  2. I had no idea that chickens could lay blue eggs! hehe. I knew the colour of the chicken had something to do with the colour of the egg, but wow - blue! :)
