Freshly Layed Eggs

They are so beautiful all nested in their boxes.  Sometimes the hens are sitting on the eggs in the morning positioning themselves over the eggs that were layed by each chicken.  The hen that sits on eggs is called a brooder.  What is a brooder hen?  She is the hen that sits on all the eggs until they hatch.  Then she will take care of the newly hatched chicks.  That’s another story…

My Rhode Island Reds lay all different shades of brown eggs.  Some of them are speckled, bumpy, long, and round.  I also have a Polish hen that lays a white egg.  An Auracana that lays a green egg and two black/white speckled chickens that lay a chocolate egg.   Mornings in my hen-house are an Easter surprise.

A freshly layed egg always tastes the best too.  If I had to describe the texture of a freshly layed egg, I’d say something along the lines velvety.
