Ready for Easter

Blue eggs

 

Don’t know if you can tell from the picture or not, but these eggs are a delightful pale blue, just in time for Easter!

What kind of hens lay blue eggs, anyway?  The answer is araucanas, among others.

Yet another nice reason to own chickens: you’ll never have to color eggs for Easter again.

I blew these out yesterday (a process which the TT found mighty interesting).  I couldn’t find my pysanki equipment so I had to do it the old-fashioned way with a needle and lots of lip power.

But aren’t they wonderful?

One breed is the Araucana

    I was thinking about setting mine out unwashed. But they aren’t very attractive! Will have to resort to blowing them out, I guess.

    I have a similar set of eggs but mine are in the fridge waiting to be eaten. 🙂
