The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

Photo #99

Our home grown eggs......nothing better

We have two lovely banty chickens and they

provide us with eggs, bug and slug control and

hours of entertainment just watching them.

Guess I should post a pic of them huh?

Have a great weekend!

I LOVE chickens!!! I used to have 2 back in the day! They make fun pets too :o)

My grandma actually made leg warmers for my first chicken I ever had. That was back in 1983. My chicken was soooo rockin' those leg warmers!! LOL

YOU are so right on this!

Elaine said...

Lovely photo.

Do the chickens lay different coloured eggs?

Kathe W. said...

Elaine- yes our two chickies lay different colored eggs...I then let the egg shells dry out a bit (hence the photo) and then crumble them up for the chickies to eat...cannabalism I know- but they are related to dinosaurs you know....

Kasi said...

that is so cool! (Found your blog from Six Word Saturday!)

Linda said...

I love eggs...but can't eat them because I am severly allergic to them.

But I think it is cool that you have chickens and eggs to enjoy!

Happy Saturday!

Once was chicken.

Now? . . .

Shell shocked!


Jim said...

My cousins raised Banties. As they were pets I never thought of eating their eggs.

Yeah, Kathe, I saw on TV that the chicken is the animal alive today nearest relative to the dinosaurs.
We fed our chickens oyster shells. I'd hate to have turned them towards cannabalism.
BTW, I did a locator check and they don't sell Adams around here.

Great six words! I'd love to get some chickens. Maybe soon?

Fiona said...

We have 6 chooks and its true that once you've had home grown eggs it's hard to go back.

Nice pic

I'll consider it a success if I can keep our herbs alive (just planted this morning). I can't even imagine chickens and fresh eggs. Enjoy!

Thanks for playing 6WS!

I didn't know you could grow eggs... when do you plant the seeds? Do they need lots of water? Do they grow well in the shade?
