HAPPY CHOOKS MAKE...


...eggs.

Ella was down with the chooks when Milly laid her first egg. As you can imagine there was much excitement.

I have had this lovely nest for a while and have been trying to source some special eggs to put in it. What could be more special than our very own, first eggs. I blew out the eggs, an idea I read on a blog; somewhere. (I am sorry if it was your idea, I promise I have searched to find out where I read it - oh I hate that) .

So we all enjoyed the egg for breakfast, yes it was a small portion each, and we still have the shell to keep. Kind of like keeping your baby teeth.

And that's enough about our chooks for now. I promise. I won't bore you with anymore farmyard antics. Back to the regular crafting and sewing updates from now on. I can't promise that you won't see the odd chook in the background of a photo though. They are free-range after all.

And thanks for all of the lovely comments about the nighties. They are so snugly and warm

P.S. If the egg blowing was your idea, please email me and I will edit the above. And, by the way, thank you.

MMmmm - toasty brown eggs from black hens are the best :)

I LOVE hearing about chooks! I think there is nothing nicer than going out in the morning and collecting the eggs. I always come inside and say "2 eggs for my breakfast" and my daughter retorts, "I knew you were going to say that!"

I'm so glad you blew out the eggs and you're keeping them. That's very special! And please do keep up the eggy-chicken reports.

Oh how exciting for your kids. It must have been a very special breakfast. I loved the nighties too, I love anything that makes kids fell cosy. Especially at the moment in this freezing weather but how good is this rain!

I wish we had our own chooks. I grew up with chooks (not in some weird raised by wolves way, but we had chooks) and I remember how lovely the eggs were. Even the free range ones don't compare to home grown ones. You are really lucky and I love the idea of keeping the shells.
I have been lurking on your blog a bit of late - its always a nice read!

We blew some eggs a few Easters ago and decorated them with vintage style decals.They turned out so nicely that I still have them on display in a glass jar!
