What? You aren't excited about this egg? Well, how about these eggs ~
Here are four lovely large green eggs! Four amazing lovely large green eggs!!!
Huh? What's so amazing? Well, they were all laid by my lovely little hen, Christmas Two, this week! Isn't she pretty?
Pretty ~ and pretty amazing, too! My amazing Mrs. Chicken is (as near as I can figure) 14 years old. Ummm... in chicken years, that is really old! Old enough to be waaaaaaaayyyyy past laying eggs...
Almost as old as Matilda. Ummm.... who was Matilda? Well, she was the first chicken to receive the title of World's Oldest Living Chicken from Guinness World Records. Find out more about her on Wikipedia. Most chickens, according to Wikipedia, live to be 7 or 8 years old.
****Whoa**** See ~ she is my amazing Mrs. Chicken! She hadn't produced any eggs since summer, so I considered her 'retired from laying eggs'. Then she surprised me with four eggs this week! I would still have thought that she was pretty amazing even if she hadn't laid any eggs ~ but now I think she is twice as amazing.
So are you happy I didn't show you any ice this Funtry Friday? Or are you missing it? Okay ~ if you are tired of all the 'ice whining', close your eyes!
|The wind blew so hard that it froze the water in wave patterns!|
Hope you enjoyed this eggs-citing news from the fowl weather country!
Hunker down and stay warm! Happy weekend!
