Chickens Laying Colored What

Good morning all my blogging friends!

So there is a rumor out there
that a breed of chickens lays not just
a golden egg,
but many colors.

I would not believe it...

Until I saw it for myself! LOL
Just kidding.
These are my fabric eggs that I just cannot keep in the store.
I sell them in these vintage egg cartons.

Would you eat an egg this color?

Which brings me to Mikayla's story.
I brought home a dozen of brown eggs recently.
Mikayla (my grand) asks
"Gramma are these eggs still good cause they turned brown"
I had to laugh.
Growing up on a farm, I only saw brown eggs,
and I said the same thing to my mom
when I saw a white egg in the grocery store for the first time.

So yesterday this was our morning sky.

Fog on the river as the sun was coming up.

With ice floating down.
This morning woke up to more snow.
One inch an hour it was coming down.
6 to 8 inches...have not checked the actual total yet.

Colored Easter Egg Blessings To All!


  1. Like your eggs, too funny about the dirty brown eggs but you can sure see why she would think that!

  2. Your eggs are gorgeous. No wonder you can't keep them in the store! The brown egg story is funny. My grandmother wouldn't eat a brown egg, so we never had them in the house. I would ask her what the difference was and she would just say "I don't know, I just don't want them"

  3. Great eggs! I love the things that come out of my son's mouth! Innocent and honesty, what a wonderful mix! ;)

  4. I wish I could visit your store! Love the eggs!

  7. I love the eggs! Is it the Americana chickens that lay the lovely colored eggs? I would love to have one someday.

  8. Love the eggs Janice, but the old carton is wonderful. When I was little we had a chicken that layed green eggs. I wouldn't eat them. My grandmother would not hear of baking a pound cake unless she had brown eggs to go in the recipe. Snow..... still dreaming here. We were in the high 60's today but suppose to have a cold spell this weekend. Take care.
