One of these things is not like the others...


I was so happy this afternoon
 to discover the first egg laid by my Ameraucana breed chicken!


My other chickens all lay brown eggs,
so the first blue/green egg was quite eggs-citing. :-)


It was especially sweet that I found it today,
since today has definitely been "one of those days"
if you know what I mean!


Hoping it's a sign that things will soon be looking up! :-)

So pretty in your egg basket. I just gave my two blue egg layers to a friend. I miss them in my egg basket around here.

Eggciting indeed. I've never seen a blue egg before in my life. Only white and brown. I'm glad you posted something like this. It's fun to read.
