On November 16, 2008 at 5:00 am Log in to Reply beth says: YAY!! :woof: Congratulations on your pink egg!! Not sure when my girls will start laying. I suspect it will be a while. The man I bought them from said maybe by Jan as they need to adjust to a new environment. And it doesn’t help that the weather here in central Indiana has been YUCKY lately. I want sun! :hissyfit: On November 16, 2008 at 7:18 am Log in to Reply Heidi533 says: Oh how pretty!

He has the look of “put that thing away and pet me” On November 16, 2008 at 7:57 am Log in to Reply margie says: Beautiful eggs! I’m so jealous of all y’all with chickens. As for the critters assisting in the typing, I’ve got 3 cats and 1 little dog. The dog is always attached, & there’s always 1 of the cats attached & if I’m having a bad arthritis flare, they ALL are ministering to me. If I could only get them to “make biscuits” on cue on my back. On November 16, 2008 at 8:11 am Log in to Reply Melissa's Cozy Teacup says: Maybe kitteh thinks you are playing hard to get?

Don’t you know that a cat getting the attention it wants is more important than work. :purr: On November 16, 2008 at 11:15 am Log in to Reply Amy says: WTG, Chickens!!!!!!!! :hungry: :woof: :shimmy: :clap: :snoopy: :elephant: :bananadance: :rockon: On November 16, 2008 at 11:37 am Log in to Reply Nancy in Atlanta says: The eggs are gorgeous! As for the cat – I have a desktop, not laptop, and Emma jumps on the slight shelf in front of it then down a level to walk on my keyboard when she wants attention. She has typed some very strange things, changed the screen, and even “sent” an email I hadn’t completed! Man, when they want to be the center of things there’s no stopping them!!! :catmeow: On November 16, 2008 at 11:52 am Log in to Reply Julie Andrea in Englehart, ON says: Woo hoo, fresh eggs, and pretty too! That kitty is adorable, just love those dreamy eyes. A kitty that shows you love, you ARE the chosen one. Hey, did you know you were mentioned in ‘The Little Egg Farm’ the other day – your recipe for Grandmother’s bread was featured, to go along with her lasagna, mmmmm .. Off to cook my own cheesey scrambled eggs now, enjoy your Sunday.

I must admit on cold nights when I work online til 3am, I don’t mind the purring scarf. On November 16, 2008 at 3:26 pm Log in to Reply Brandy says: OOh, it’s almost too pretty to eat!

And the cat… We call those “boomerang cats or dogs”, whatever the case may be. On November 16, 2008 at 6:35 pm Log in to Reply Sunnid755 says: totally awesome eggs! How pretty, thanks for sharing.

On July 31, 2009 at 11:41 am Log in to Reply Suzanne says: I get green and blue and sometimes pink eggs. I have Araucanas and Americaunas. On July 31, 2009 at 2:02 pm Log in to Reply Diane says: My chickens have been a little slow too………..but no pink ones yet ! I put out a light and they are now beginning to produce. Heard you are doing another Blue Book Give away………..sure could use one ! Thanks On January 28, 2010 at 10:21 am Log in to Reply LK says: What kind of chickens do you have? I would love to get some this spring and am still researching the varieties. I am really wanting Araucanas (lays colored eggs, they have no tail and often a tuft on one side of their neck/head), but the real deal is very rare in Canada, much less in my province. It is more common to find the cross: Americana (better known as the Easter Eggers, they have tails and no tufts). I guess that is how it is sometimes. But…I am really curious what would lay the pink egg. On March 12, 2010 at 11:10 pm Log in to Reply Suzanne McMinn says: LK, we have all kinds of chickens–our Easter Eggers are the Ameraucanas. Probably the pink egg was actually a pink-tinted light brown one from one of the chickens that lay brown eggs but I don’t know which one. I get pink eggs occasionally still. On March 13, 2010 at 6:29 am Log in to Reply momma-leigh says: I just found this posting I know its old, I am curious how old it really took them. I have had a leghorn and a Dominqure (I know I miss spelled that) that have no interest in laying! I got them fully feathered back in MAY!!Help please what am I doing wrong? Do I need to show them somehow?? On October 11, 2010 at 9:29 am Log in to Reply Suzanne McMinn says: momma-leigh, mine usually start laying somewhere between 5 and 7 months. Give them layer feed and plenty of water then all you can do is wait! On October 11, 2010 at 10:53 am Log in to Reply momma-leigh says: Thank you very much…I really didnt want to have to show them how to do that, I dont think my neighbors would like the sight! Hopefully they will catch on soon! On October 12, 2010 at 12:19 pm Log in to Reply Lisabeth Olson says: Suzanne, you would enjoy the Marans. They lay chocolate eggs. That would really give you color. The Marans eggs are huge also. I have one customer that requests those eggs. The hens are black and the roosters look like Barred Plymouth Rocks. They are wonderful meat birds. Do you butcher your old ones and can the meat? I do that way I always have canned meat on hand to make meat dips. Look in your ball book and make the Zucchini Relish. I started making just a dozen jars a couple of years ago and this year I made 32. There is only 2, my husband and I in the family. We use lots of it. I like it better than pickle relish. You have a wonderful site here. :duck: :duck: :duck: On November 21, 2010 at 7:33 pm Log in to Reply sarah says: Pink!! I thought I was special when my crazy floppy comb leghorn gave me a nearly 4 oz! egg! But Pink- huphf! I will have to have a chat with the ladies in the hen house and have them step up their game a bit.
