meet cora and rosie

our new easter egger pullets....

these gals are a birthday gift to myself. easter eggers lay tinted eggs, different shades of blue, green and pink. i am just so happy to get this little ladies. this is rosie.....


just look at those fluffy little cheeks. she laid me a beautiful green egg this morning. and this is cora....


she appears to younger, but laid the palest baby blue egg. both are so timid and scared. i am guessing it is because they are getting the ever living crap pecked out of them right now!! holy cow, the other ladies are reestablishing the pecking order and i do mean pecking order. these two have been afraid to come out of the coop for most of the day. i had to go referee earlier. i know things will calm down soon and peace and harmony will prevail. oh, wait, i forgot caroline and travis live here, scratch that. anyway,  

those two lovelies laid these....


no, not the brown one, that is from lucy. also, who does this chicken think she's fooling?




i guess with the two new additions, minnie must have thought her days were numbered, so she decide to act like a big girl. yea right, it was all show, no egg. oh well.

enjoy.

Hi Beth! Love your chickens. So cute and they look just like their names :) I'll bet they're a real treat to have around with all their fresh eggs. You are a lucky girl and they are lucky ladies too.
What a great birthday presten to yourself. When is your birthday?

Oh, I love chicken posts. When I was a child I was scared to death of them b/c my grandmother once gave me a bowl with chicken feed to scatter around and the chickens all rushed at me, I got scared, threw the bowl up in the air, all the seed coming out, some landing in my rolled up pantlegs, and the chickens were all trying to peck my pants to get the feed out. Traumatized me for years. LOL. Now, I have managed to overcome all that early trauma, I love looking at their feathers and seeing all the different ones. They have such personalities, too. Pretty eggs. We are getting on the mend here...I thought this was never going to end, but I think I see the end in sight. I am getting a flu shot tomorrow, taking no chances. TTYS.

How lucky that you have your own egg supply and such beautiful eggs at that.

Oooh blue eggs! I remember seeing them in London and being absolutely fascinated by them as we just don't get them here!
