I just wanna say

That, after a very slow winter, my chickens are laying in earnest again:

Also - remember that recent heavy snow we had?
It totally busted one of our garden sprinkler pipes:


However, the Camelid Conference I attended yesterday?

It was super cool:

That is all.


  1. No one else will get this, but yep, eggs count!

    Happy Birthday!

  2. I love to arrange the eggs by color, looks like you do too!

  3. Only three of my 10 hens are laying/back to laying at this point, but that is a far sight better than the none or occasionally one we were experiencing earlier this year!

    Glad you enjoyed the conference.

  4. You're so funny, Danni! I love that you thought a camelid conference was super cool! Sorry about the pipe....I guess at least it wasn't one for the house.

    hope you are getting some sunshine soon!

  5. Your Hen House Girls are doing a great job! They lay such a variety of colors too.

    I'll bet the conference was fun.

  6. WOO HOOOOOOOO!! Go chickens! Such a sure sign spring is actually here :) Meanwhile it's been a lovely Autumn day this side of the world and my flock are moulting like crazy

  7. Glad to see the girls are back on song, and dang (oh look Americanism) the snow.

    Also you obviously had a great Camelid Day, hope you you found the day helpful, and came home will lots of wonderful information, and some new friends.

  8. The camelid conference sounds like a fantastic opportunity. The busted sprinkler pipe sounds like a bummer. Eggs tilt the balance in favor of an all around good day though. :)

  9. i want chickens!!! teddy does not!

  10. Woot for the egg-layers! I can't wait to get some chickens, they'll probably lay by November, but that is a-okay with me.

  11. Your eggs are BEAUTIFUL! I could just stare at their pretty colors. Awesome!

    Sorry about the pipe breaking! :(

    What'd you learn at the conference? Did people bring their camel and llama pics and show them off? Did you show off Kai? I hope you brought a pic of her with all the hay stuck to her sides, that always makes me laugh! That's my fav pic of her!

  12. Glad to hear the conference was good. My girls are in full production again. They didn't slow down too much this year because they're still young. I'm anticipating a light egg production next winter though.

  13. Ah, farm life with it's ups and downs. It all seems to balance out in the long run.

    Glad you had a good day at the conference.

  14. Nice looking egg, and a bunch of them too. Did you get them all in one day? I like the assortment of colors.

  15. Hooray for the eggs! A friend sometimes shares fresh eggs with us. This week, they went into a great potato salad!

    So sorry about the water pipe. That's no fun. We had that problem with our record-setting cold snap last month. No fun at all.

    I'm so glad that you got to go to and enjoyed the camelid conference.

    Thanks for the reports.

  16. Looks like a great gathering of like minded llama lovers. *smile*

    Yay on the eggs! That's enough to do some serious cooking. I would love farm fresh eggs from hens that are as happy as yours.

  17. Can't wait to hear more about the conference. Sorry about the pipes - what a pain.

  18. Congratulations on all the eggs!

    Sorry to hear about the pipe. We lost a copper pipe to the winter weather this year. Fortunately it was not a critical one.

    Glad to hear you enjoyed your conference. Have a great weekend! :)

  19. I didn't know that llamas and camels are related... thank you for teaching me something new.

    You've definitely got some happy hens there, Danni!

  20. I didn't see an e-mail for you so I am hoping you will see this here.

    Worlds largest chicken egg...

    I thought you would get a kick out of this.


I ♥ it when you leave a comment.
