Getting Fresh


A Bantam egg . . . just laid  and still warm 🙂

Ten Feathers

Today’s prompt…

No…I didn’t let Bailey loose on the marauding Cockatoos or pluck the broody hens who’ve stopped laying! With so much birdlife around there’s always feathers in the yard and Bailey loves to play with them 🙂 Poor cat who is confined to the Great Indoors or his outside pen gets very frustrated with Magpies teasing him on the verandah and rabbits, including the tiniest babies, running all over the lawn and right up to the back and front doors! Then, to add insult to injury, when I took him out to his pen just a few minutes ago . . . another cat! Obviously one whose parents let him wander. I’m so glad Bailey can’t talk or I’m sure all I’d hear would be All the other mums let their cats out. You’re not fair!  It’s for your own good, son!  🙂

NaNoWriMo Update: I thought as the month wore on I’d be struggling to maintain the required words each day but rather, each time I add more I can’t wait to reach the next mini-milestone I’ve set. (We won’t mention the things here that aren’t getting done 😦 )Yesterday I thought I might make it to 40,000 but got a bit tired late in the evening and decided on a fresh start today. I’m now up to 39,751 words and still enjoying it 🙂


Today’s prompt…

These two are actually both bantam eggs . . . one from a new layer and the other from an older hen. And they both taste great on toast for breakfast 🙂

Freshly Laid

Today’s prompt…

I still get a thrill when I find a nice little stash in the chook house 🙂

I’ve kept chooks (hens) for  27 years and in that time I’ve only needed to buy a dozen eggs twice! I used to sell them from my old home until one customer decided that free range meant free-for-him 😦

When Jess was in kindergarten, I was reading a book to a group of children and asked the usual question when we came to a page featuring E for eggs. Where do eggs come from? One little girl looked at me as though I was already senile (I was about 27!) when I suggested they might come from hens and walked off in disgust saying ‘Everyone knows they come from Coles.”
