2016-03-31 the brownest egg  Cr.jpg

The brownest egg any of us ever did see, and it belongs to one of our chickens.  It is a small egg and so we can assume our hen has just started laying.  Oh how we hope she will turn out to be a good layer and that we can breed for these rich looking eggs!

The only other good news this week was that I saw three lambs on Valley Road.  Lambs!  But the driver kept going and I didn’t get a photo.

Now for the bad new (not news to anybody who is a Facebook friend of my hubby):

We all caught pinkeye from Kiki who caught it from a guest last weekend, and look like extras in some Halloween horror extravaganza.   Austin posted a photo of his eye on Facebook; I think these glasses are gruesome enough.

The public health spokesperson has asked all infected persons to stay home – but sooner or later, we run out of food.   I went straight from the car to the nearest shop to get dark eyeware.   And then I joined the throngs of Cool Folks in Shades on the street and in the stores.  It’s an epidemic of discomfort and inconvenience

Thank God it isn’t something that blinds or kills.

  1. Those are some very pretty eggs 🙂 Is it easy for you to identify the perpetrator?

    Pink eye. Remember having a bad bout of that as a kid. Not nice 😦 A pair of those rose-tinted glasses sure would come in handy till it wears off! Gute Besserung.

  2. Austin would find the brown-egg-mama if she would just drop a few more. Still waiting.

    Rose-tinted glasses – you’d think they’d be the perfect camouflage: the red would wash out! But alas the puffiness would be visible – so I’m sticking with Sandra-Bullock-incognito black. As if her housekeeper’s most indigent third cousin would be caught in the pair I just bought. Once I don’t need them, I’m going to go buy me some better ones.

  3. Wow! Pinkeye! I had it when I was little, and I remember it itching and watering. Not good! The eggs are cool. The brown one is really brown. A lady not far from where I live sells blue, green and brown eggs. I think they taste different! May be my imagination.

    • When you come here someday, Larry, we can do a blind taste test with the different colored eggs. Austin claims they all taste the same – but it’s not scientific until we do a TEST !! (Happy to let you know the pinkeye is gone now. Yay)
