A DAY OUTDOORS WITH MY CHICK FRIENDS AND BLUE EGGS

A Nest of Blue, Green, and White Eggs
Here are the blue and green eggs I promised to show you!
Sorry, I have not found the hens they lay the Chocolate Color Eggs, Yet!

Let take a peek at Diamond our Hen sitting on the eggs

Diamond prefers to sit on the eggs in a milk crate,
Yes, I do have a nesting box, but not one hen wants to lay in it!

Here is a chicken coop, my hubby put together, from old rabbit pens.
I got rabbit pens free, and using them for a second time around, for raising the little chicks in, until they are large enough to go in the chicken run.

Every Morning I am greeted by my little chicks at the door,
just waiting to fly onto my arms.

This little chick loves to be held, just like me! lol

This bantam sea bright chick, loves to stand on the water jar.

Yes, the chick is still posing for you.

Now, my hubby took down my old chicken house.
This chicken run is for temporary housing.
Until the another chicken house gets built. Where are the chickens?
Most of my chickens are free range,
so they are out and about.
This hen lays pink, green, and blue eggs.
Can you see her little chick riding on her back?
Here are my Bantams chicks that greet me at the door.
The black are Old English Bantams,
the brown and black are Sea bright Bantams
The speckled color chicks are Molted Bantams.
We’ve had several death in our family.
I been out state twice, then on a few other trips out of town,
and got to fit in some shopping!
I am enjoying the outdoors, and working on many projects in our home.
Please know I am doing OK, for I have a lot to do before my next major surgery.
Thank you all for for your concern, Emails and Comments.
It is such a nice feeling to know you all are Thinking of Me!
Thank you all so much!
As Always Save A Cup Of Tea For Me!

  1. Hello Katherine…

    Ohhh my…you have quite the little family there! I must admit that I don’t know much about chickens, even though I am a country girl! Hehe! I certainly didn’t know that chickens could lay those beautiful blue and green eggs! Aren’t those just the prettiest shades of blue and green that you’ve ever seen? I love the Bantam chickens…and the one that loves to be held is so cute!

    Such a sweet post…thank you for sharing it with us today for Sunday Favorites!!! Have a super Sunday, my sweet friend!

  2. I’ve never seen a hen lay pink and blue eggs, only white. They look so cute. And that little one looking straight through the camera atop a jar 🙂

    Oh i didn’t know you were gonna have surgery scheduled. I hope and pray all will go well that day. That God will bless and guide the surgeons and nurses who will be with you at that moment Katherine.

  3. Sweet Katherine, It is so good to connect with you! You have been in my thoughts, friend. Your chicks and their Momma’s eggs are precious. I’m delighted to hear that you have been having some fun, and I’m praying that you get everything done that you need to, and that the Lord will go before you and tend to all the details.

    Be sure and let me know when you might be in Florida! Maybe we can get together!

    Love and hugs to you special friend,
    Becky

  4. Dearest Katherine!

    Those eggs are so beautiful! Such soft pretty colors! Thank you so much for taking the time to photograph them and your cute chickies. You know I love looking at chickens! I’m thinking more and more that I just need to take the plunge and get some!

    I know you’re busy with so many things right now and I can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to.

    Take care,

    Hugs,

    Manuela

  5. Hi Katherine! Came by to check up on you! I hear ya on the outside, busy, and farm projects! Hope we get together this month, I’m looking forward to that!
    Hubby is as work on our new coop and we are so excited to be getting chickens. We get eggs from a family member but nothing like having your own chickens. The same family member is going to give us our chickens! xoxo

  6. Now this is so fun. Love the pretty blue eggs and the milk crate is so funny. I still have you in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless. Hugs, Marty

  7. Wow, you learn something new every day. I had no idea you could get such pretty colorful eggs without using PAAS. Thanks for sharing.

  8. What wonderful eggs!!! I love the colors!!! I have always wanted to have chickens!!! Someday!!!

    Darling post!!! So glad that you shared it with us today!!!

    Enjoy!!!
    XOXO
    Cathy

  9. I hope things go better for you.
    I was just about to have eggs for breakfast but these guys are so cute I don’t know if I can do it now.
    Talk about being removed from where our food comes from. Jeesh.

  10. Hi Katherine,

    I must have missed something regarding your health problems. I’ll say a prayer for your speedy recovery.

    Are all your chicks bantams? Hubby raises chickens too. I can’t get around them because of my asthma, but I have posted pictures documenting their growth from day-old chicks until now on my ‘blahwg’ blog.

    We have 4 older hens that give us delicious eggs. We also have 50 hens that should be laying in about a month or so. Half of those lay the blue-green eggs. They are the best – so rich!

    My grandkids never liked eggs before, but now they ask for them!

  11. Hello dear friend… I love your chickens. No, I ADORE your chickens, and those chicks are just too cute for words. I have always wanted to keep chickens, but I fear my dogs would find them too interesting!

    You know you have my prayers and good wishes, always — be well.
    Cass

  12. I love those pretty eggs, Katherine!

    I had a run-in with a Banty Rooster, when I was about 4 or 5 years old. MFA is a Missouri agricultural organization. My granddad worked for the MFA Exchange/Elevator. Each year there would be a meeting, in town. One year, a magician was the entertainment. My cousin was called on to be his assistant. He placed cake ingredients into a pan with a lid and asked My cousin to hold it while he waved the magic wand and said the magic words. The lid was raised and instead of a cake was a whole pan of bantam chicks. They grew up and lived with the other chickens, at Granny and Granddad’s. One afternoon, Granddad was mowing and asked me to shut the gate by the chicken house. I did just that and as I was leaving the banty rooster jumped on my head and flogged me all through the yard and up onto the front porch, where Granny flew out of the front door and plucked him from my head. I never saw that rooster again. He “mysteriously” disappeared…I believe, into a pot of dumplings!:-). That’s a memory I’m always reminded of when I see little banties!

    Thoughts and prayers remain with you!

  13. Those chickens are so lively and fun! I remember seeing my cousin’s grandmother go out and wring a neck – I never knew that was the first step to friend chicken! Hope you are having a good day. Linda

  14. Thank you so much for the sweet
    B-day wishes my friend! It means so much to me coming from you. You’re the best!

    Love your pretty blue eggs and the sweet chickens! ~Beautiful! 🙂

  15. I am so glad you are doing ok, Katherine. What a fun post! I did not know chickens could lay different colored eggs….Christine

  16. Katherine with a K,

    (As in Anne with an e of Green Gables)

    I am glad you are busy and getting things done before your surgery. Don’t overdo it and let someone help. I’ve been told sometimes it takes more grace to be helped than to help. I will be praying for your surgery. Keep us posted as to when it is.
    I did not know chickens layed colored eggs other than brown and white. I would like to have some but don’t know if it is possible. I like yours. What would I need and how do I get started, very small?
    Also, I want to do a bed and breakfast at home this weekend for our anniversary? Do you have any low cost suggestions? I am planning on hanging some different pictures in our room and fixing a nice healthy breakfast with a pretty table. Maybe have a clean funny movie. No candles or perfumed anything as he is highly allergic. Thanks for your help.
    PS Don’t grab my email off my blog or he will see. Just leave a comment on my blog.

  17. Kathrine, I’ve been gone, but I wanted to be sure and check in with you. Those chickens are so sweet, and the eggs are so pretty. I didn’t know that hens laid blue and pink eggs. WOW! I guess the commercial eggs I’ve seen are brown or white, so it’s neat to see the pretty blue ones.

    Hope you are enjoying life. I’m thinking of you and hoping you are feeling great.

    Sending much love your way…

    XO,

    Sheila 🙂

  18. Katherine…I love coming to your home for a visit! That was so much fun seeing where your chickens spend their day. I love those darling blue eggs…so cute! That’s so sweet out they fly out and land on your arms. I clicked on the pic to enlarge it so I could see the chick on Mom’s back. 🙂 You always share such facinating things with us…love visiting here! Susan

  19. Okay, now I really sound crazy, because apparently my first comment didn’t show up! This was such an interesting post (especially for someone who knows nothing about hens or chicks). They are really pretty creatures, and I’m amazed to see that their personalities showing through your photos. I’m so glad you are doing okay. laurie

  20. First of all – I wish you well in your surgery and hope all goes ok. I must have missed the post on that.
    I had heard of chickens that laid the blue & green eggs, but don’t think I have ever heard about the pink ones.

  21. Hi Katherine, love your sweet pictures!

    So sorry about the rooster day mixup. I have done that same thing myself….sure puts you in a panic, doesn’ it?

    Looking forward to seeing you on the 28th.

    Hugs, Barb

  22. Love the post! I have always wanted chickens! When we had land we also had alot of coyotes so we never bought any.

    I heard on a Martha Steward program years ago that you can tell the color of an egg the chicken will lay by looking at the inside part of their ear- I had to laugh as I never knew they had ears!

    Does it work?

  23. Katherine, my friend. What an interesting post. I had no idea you actually had chicks that layed eggs, let alone colored eggs. I’m so in awe. what an interesting place you have, so full of mother nature and all it’s beauty. I’m so glad to hear you’re doing well. I think of you often. Like you “life” is just way too full at times. I’m sorry to hear of the deaths in your family. Be sure to swing by and say hello when you can. I miss you too darling,
    hugs ~lynne~

  24. Your chicks are soooo cute. I’m so glad that you are getting around better and able to make some trips. Please let us know before your next surgery takes place.

  25. Hi Katherine,
    Love the post, I have always thought it would be fun to have chickens. They are so cute. I guess I will have to just enjoy yours. Hope all is well.
    Maryrose

  26. I thoroughly enjoyed visiting with the inhabitants of the coop. Your husband did a great job with scarp material and your photos are terrific. I hope you are having a wonderful day.

  27. Hello, Lady…I love love those colored eggs..amazing!
    Thanks for sharing all your chickens with us. My mother always had them but Sweet Nothings Cottage is slap dab in the middle of a large town and they might frown on having chicks in my back yard. I’d love it, tho. 🙂
    I am still going to do a posting on you but will be in the fall. Summer schedule is too full!!

    I sure hope you are feeling well enuf to enjoy this summer. It is nearly over…when is surgery scheduled?
    hugs, bj

  29. Those eggs are so pretty, I always buy the blue and tan ones at our farmer’s market. DH just laughs, since the shells are going in the trash, but I love to look at them. I love the picture of the chick riding on mama’s back – so sweet. Thanks for such a pretty post. Kathy
