Chicken eggs of all colors

I’m not much of an egg person. I like eggs in cookies and cakes but I sure can admire a pretty set of eggs when I see them. Here are a few eggs we’ve got this week. I’m not sure what we did to get such nice looking eggs but sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good.

The blue and green eggs are from Ameraucana hens. The dark brown egg is from a Dark Cornish hen, I believe. And the light brown is from a hen we call white chicken as she is white.

As you see the yokes are pretty dark which is amazing as the hens really only get wheat and table scraps this time of year. I guess we also feed them the same hay we feed the cows so maybe that’s why they are so orange.

These almost look good enough even for me to give them a taste. Almost.
