moonpie, chicken midwife

This morning Moonpie ran into the kitchen holding a beautifully tinted green egg.

Moonpie: "Look Momma!"

Me: "Oh, good job babe, you found another egg" (her 3rd of the day)

MP: "Yeah, Goldie was just sitting in my lap and then she started laying this egg"

M: "She laid an egg, IN YOUR LAP?"

MP: "Yeah, and when I saw it coming out I just went ahead and pulled it a little- like this" (demonstration ensues)

M: "Wait, the chicken was in your lap laying an egg and then you pulled it out?"

MP: "Yep!!!"

There was more, but you get the gist. That crazy girl, delivering chicken eggs. She has a future as a midwife- a chicken midwife.

This incident solved a mystery for us. We thought we had one serious producing Arecauna, but it turns out our Wyandottes lay tinted eggs as well. Good to know, I was feeling a little sorry for ol' Lucy, thinking she was turning out 3 a day!
Upcoming post: our trip to SanFran. Oh the anticipation!

Dylan is amazing! I can't believe that a chicken would lay in her lap. That chicken has lots of trust in her. For real, yo! The girl is ONE with the chickens. I love it!

We need to hang out soon!
