Two eggs Tuesday, another two eggs Wednesday.  First time we had two eggs, two days in a row.

Yesterday morning I was thinking, “gee, I wonder when they’ll lay three eggs in one day…”

The chickens must have heard me and decided they were going to skip three and go straight to four

Yup, apparently they are overachievers.  Caroline and Nony laid eggs Thursday morning.  Ella added her own later in the morning.  And then Pippi decided to make it a record extraordinaire by laying an egg late in the afternoon.

Based on the egg laying in the heart of winter, I’d say they are healthy and happy hens! 

Thus, it was another all-our-chickens’-eggs omelette this morning.  It was really orange despite the fact that the ground is frozen and I am not sure what exactly they are eating, but they seem to be finding something yummy.  They’ve been busy in the orchard and garden most days since the last uber-cold snap.

    Soooooo exciting! FOUR EGGS… it’s perfect! What wonderful overachieving hens!

    If you need a break from omelettes, one of my favorite breakfast dishes these days is this:

    Cut an avocado in half and remove the pit. If needed, make a slightly bigger hole. Crack an egg into it. Cover with parmesan cheese. Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes. DELICIOUS! Depending on the size of your eggs and the size of the pits, you might have to whisk and scramble the eggs and pour smaller amounts in… but it’s love when it’s a whole egg!

    Thanks for the post!
