Egad!  Or eggs, to be exact . . .

Our little girls have grown so, and look what happened!  They are producing about a dozen or so eggs each week and today we gave away a dozen to one of our neighbors as we cannot keep up.  They are still small, but so delicious!  Have been sharing garden produce with the girls and I think it makes for great tasting eggs.  Take a bow, girls!

Trying to get Phyl and Marilyn to stand still for a photo is next to impossible–they shake their elegant plumes like a feather duster and dart around the pen, pecking at my shoes.  At times they present themselves directly at my feet and hop straight into the air to get my attention.  What characters, and so gentle.

Grandson Seamus was asked to name this girl as he picked her out last March as a baby chick.  He said I needed to watch a video to understand.  I did, and I did.  Not all eleven of the girls have been featured here, so they anxiously await their turn to preen for our blog followers.
