Every chicken has her own style egg. Calcasieu and Evangeline lay the blue eggs (which are pretty indistinguishable) but there are three other distinct brown shades for the four other birds.


I know that it’s either Assumption or Ascension (I still can’t tell them apart) who lay the brown eggs with dark brown spots. I know because I heard a triumphant cackle and then one of them walked down the ramp in pride. The egg I retreived was still warm…and speckled.

Another chicken lays pink eggs, and two more lay regular-old brown eggs.

What a pleasure to open my fridge to this.
