You guys, I finally got a beautiful bluish-greenish egg this morning from Ivy, one of my new Aracauna's! And it was in the egg box, right next to Marigold's big brown beautiful egg (not playing favorites)! How these relatively dim birds figure out where I want them to deposit their precious egg is beyond me. It is so perfect; and the only real reason I got new chicks this year!
... and it was a double-yolker to boot! Don't you love how the shell is seafoamy green, even on the inside? So happy!
Also finally invested in some proper coop shoes. I've been ruining my clogs and flip-flops out there and needed some designated 'chicken shoes.'
