Easter Egg Fun

Nick and I enjoyed dying eggs our own chickens laid for Easter. It was interesting to see how the dye made certain imperfections in each egg stand out. Our chickens lay delicious eggs, but they are hardly ever the perfect shape you find in stores. I love seeing the odd shapes we get sometimes. Every once in a while, we get a super oval egg instead of the slightly more pear shapes you commonly see.

When we were ready to dye, we had saved up ten eggs, so that is how many we hard boiled and played with. We had three normal dyes and three “marble” dyes. To turn a dye into a marbling dye, you just need to add a tiny bit of canola oil to the dye.

Egg Dye

I think it was quite fitting that we used our chicken mugs to dye our chicken eggs.

Here was our little setup. You just can’t dye Easter eggs without a little “Running Man” going on in the background. Can’t beat Arnold with a beard.

I hope you are all having an amazing Easter weekend and get to do something fun and colorful as well!

Egg-cellent!

In the midst of all of our crazy packing and cleaning, we found a surprise this morning.

Look what I did!

McCormick laid her first egg! We weren’t expecting this until October or late September at the earliest! It was a great surprise. She seems very proud.

This is today’s haul. The tomatoes are hanging on for dear life while the jalapenos are pwning.

One of these things is not like the other

Jaydee even seems impressed by his sister’s accomplishment.

What is this madness?

Life is moving super fast and exciting as we gear up to move in two weeks, pack, get some eggs, and gear up for fall and the best time of the year (October – Jan)!!!!
