Farm Fresh Eggs

Here is my hen Henrietta sitting near a basket full of Farm Fresh eggs out in my front yard. There are brown eggs and green eggs. They are really cool looking and taste just wonderful. F.Y.I. Henrietta didn't lay all those eggs. Matter of fact she didn't lay even one of them. You see... Henrietta is my ceramic (fake) hen. She lives up above on top of my kitchen cabinetry. I have a Rooster too, his name is Rocky, maybe you'll meet him someday too. I live in a subdivision where I can not own any type of fowl within the city limits. Boo hoo!!! So I purchase my farm fresh eggs from my dear friend Teriann who lives on a farm. Lucky her!

Here is a close up of some of the eggs. The pale green and brown eggs are just about the same size. They are so large that sometimes the egg cartons can't shut close. Then there are the teeny tiny eggs from Teriann's Banty hens. They are just too cute.

Hope that you didn't mind my spoof. The funny part is that my neighbors were watching me put Henrietta out on the front lawn with the basket of eggs and taking photos. I must have looked like I had lost my marbles. Oh well, it was all in good humor and laughter is contagious, even if it is at yourself.

Thank you Teriann for such wonderful eggs and delivering them to me on Friday mornings when we get together for coffee.

Oh, lucky you! I wish I had somewhere I could get farm fresh eggs.

By the way, your blog won't let me leave my proper blog address when I leave comments anymore! lol It's just now instead of I wish they had an open ID option for blogs, which is what I have now. Oh well. :p

Angie~ As I was reading your blog I did not know whether to laugh or to cry. I feel so blessed to be able to raise these hens and get eggs to you and your family. I am glad that you enjoy them... Also I think that you have a good looking hen. I am curious how you are going to post the steer in your freezer. Do you have a fake steer sitting around anywhere? You will surley get some wierd looks from your neighbors! :0)
