Barred Beauty

This lovely lady adds to the delicious egg crop too. Can you imagine how good the eggs are from free grazing hens.  I truly find it very hard to eat the pale yolked eggs from a grocery store.

 

The eggs are a little crisper than I had planned but they were delicious nonetheless. The asparagus was from my garden.

What a beauty!!!! Your breakfast looks quite yummy!

Very much agreed regarding those delicious looking yolks Mary - beautiful isn't she!
Mary MacADNski: She is very well cared for.
We are fortunate enough to get our eggs from a neighbour with free range chickens. The eggs taste very good Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Country living is best for the freshest food.

It is amazing to see so many different beauties of hens. The meal looks delicious, I have just eaten asparagus with potatoes.
Mary MacADNski: I have been eating asparagus daily as usual this time of year and certainly with potatoes which PEI is famous for.

there is nothing like home-grown food...
Mary MacADNski: Don't I know it. There has never been a chemical on my own food.

"The sky is falling...I tell you!"
Mary MacADNski: You can talk all you want.... We have been privileged to finally get rain a few days ago. Let the skies fall - an inch a week.

If the eggs were half as good as she looks I am sure they were delicious.

A pond life update: No ducklings but I did see we have a couple of moorhen chicks this morning. Not on the water yet so I hope they survive.
Mary MacADNski: I am not familiar with moorhens but can picture them from photos here. I know nothing of their habits. I have pond news too. A beaver has come on my side.
A real egg is something to enjoy. The mass produced battery ones are not worth buying
Mary MacADNski: I could eat one if I didn't cook it. But gosh, I would never buy supermarket eggs.

Is she a Barred Plymouth Rock, Mary?

We had one named June after my mother in law who was born in Plymouth.
Mary MacADNski: She probably is as that is a popular breed. They have lots of variety in their hen stock.
Fine eating!
Mary MacADNski: All fresh and new. My garden has been abundant.
Pretty coat of feathers...
