Cock-a-Doodle-Doo





Sorry everyone for the delay in the posting. With my birthday this weekend, we were so busy with a flurry of activities. I'll post those pictures another time! Here is the answer to the Guess the farm animal. It's a Rooster & two Hens!! These chickens are free-range chickens and organic. They are allowed to roam the farm as they please, and also they eat organic corn and grain. These chickens are super healthy, and each chicken on average lays one egg everyday. I had so much fun collecting eggs everyday. There were usually 1 dozen laid eggs a day. What I thought was so neat is that some chickens lay brown eggs, and some lay white eggs. There are actually no nutritional difference between the eggs even though they are different colors. However, where we live, they always sell brown eggs for more money, even though brown eggs doesn't mean it's more healthy. Its all a marketing ploy. I never knew that before, how annoying!

Happy June to all!!

Hmmm, chick-hens look better when Grampy grill them. Yummy! Mom doesn't care what color her eggs are, not that she eats that many.

Cock a doodle doo to you too! Great pics. My mom and I looked up on the internet about roosters for our last post and found out that the white hens lay white eggs and the others usually lay brown like in your post. Cool, huh?
