I started getting eggs last week. I have been so excited and I go out to the hen house about every 2

two or three hours to check to see if I have an egg. I usually get one in the late morning. So the one on the left is the one from today. It is significatly bigger than the last five. They all seem to be the same color so I beieve it is either Lucy or Ethal, one of the Rhode Island Reds that is laying. I give them all a pep talk after I collect the one egg and tell them thank you and please would the other girls start laying now?

I only have nine hens and one rooster now. Thelma turned out to be a rooster and she went to live at my friend's plant nursery. Wilmer now rules the roost for the time being.

So now that I can publish posts I seem to have hit the wrong button and hit the button too fast. So I will close for now with more to follow later. Tata.

My Beautiful Granddaughters

I am going to see if I can post this morning. For some reason I have not been able to post for a while. I will have a great post written with pictures and Blogger will not publish it. It has been very frustrating.

I have been having a great time with my granddaughters who are visiting from Idaho. They are Elizabeth and Samantha who are almost 19 and 17.

They are so much fun.

Talk to you soon.
