So, last weekend we went away to Tillamook for County Fair weekend ... and we had a blast!!! It was nice to get away for a couple days and spend time with my family! Hubby watched the "farm" on Friday while we were away and then joined us Saturday morning after his morning chores. Our wonderful neighbors kept an eye out for our ladies for us on Saturday, collected the eggs, locked everyone in their coops at night, and let everyone out Sunday morning since we wouldn't be home until later in the day.
I went down Monday to talk with our neighbors to see how everything went while we were gone and she stated that they ended up with 9 eggs (several brown, a green, and a couple white). When she said white, I thought she was just talking about really light blue/green eggs ... until yesterday when I went out to the coop and low and behold a white egg. I'm thinking that our Easter Eggers (the three blondies) are throwing white eggs. I was a little disappointed since we got the Easter Eggers for their colored eggs, but after having a day to think about it I guess it really doesn't matter ... it just adds another color to our egg basket.
We are now up to brown eggs, chocolate colored eggs, blue (robin egg colored) eggs, a green tinted egg, and now our white eggs. Hopefully this coming week I will remember to take a picture of our full egg basket with the assortment.
Week of August 5 - August 11: 71 eggs (35 RIRs, 17 BCMs, 9 Cuckoos, and 10 EE) *plus eggs the neighbors collected which I didn't count in our count.
Mo Didly Update: We have found a home for Mr. Mo Didly. He will be going to live with Farmer John and family starting on Monday!!! He really is a pretty bird ... we just have too many roosters to keep him!
