So exciting! so, Sunday, the same day dear little Vanilla went to Chicken Heaven...
I discovered something...hidden among the peas....
whatever could it be...but an egg from sweet Penny! a lovely pale green color....gorgeous!
And then of course I had to set up some photos...hehe!
She laid a second egg today, but I was too late letting them out of the coop and so it got trampled( need to get those nesting boxes built now...)
But! She is laying now! which is fantastic! Goldie should start laying soon as well, she will lay just brown eggs, and my newest baby, Cinnamon will also lay green/blue eggs.
anyways...that was my exciting news! oh, and I'm finally finished with school for the year, so expect lots of new things for my shop!

Little Vanilla had to be uh, taken care of today.

She was doing great since Friday, but today when I was taking care of them, she was just laying there, not doing anything, so antibiotics, water, nothing helped, we separated her from Cinnamon, and kept an eye on her for the rest of the day, but she took a turn for the worse this evening, and so I allowed dad to do what he had said he could do if it needed done.

So, I'll just have three chickens, three is plenty.

Cookie and Cream are going back to the feed store today and will be exchanged for standard size chickens, who have been sexed, because, as it happens...Cookie and Cream turned out to be Bob and Rob....two little roosters...the neighbors would so hate me!
The duck will be staying around, as she is a she....haha
I'll introduce the new babies when I get them.
