Chicken Update

Now we've got two hens (a Red and a Speckled) laying pretty little tan and brown eggs.  Although the nesting box in their Coop is clean and cozy the hens seem to prefer the furthest, deepest, darkest, corner under the back deck to lay their eggs.  It takes courage (spiders and spider webs!) and contortion to crawl under the deck.  So far we've been able to gather them all.  At least we hope so.

Last night's dinner using a dozen little eggs:

Asparagus Frittata and Bruschetta with basil and heirloom tomatoes
