My Most Coppery Brown Marans Egg Ever and a Giveaway

After being gone for a week I found these in the kitchen…


Maybe I need to leave more often πŸ˜‰

The hens are really starting to lay, finally… and here is the darkest most coppery brown Marans egg yet…


I’m saving up the dark ones just in case a hen goes broody. πŸ™‚

We have some more beautiful colors happening here besides the copper eggs…

Lilacs and creeping phlox…

Beautiful tulips and irises that my daughter picked the night before we had another freeze…


I just had to paint these…you can see what I did at

Speaking of paintings…I’ve been meaning to have a giveaway for months now, but life has been a bit different lately, and I’m in the process of moving my mother to live with us. My goal was to do another giveaway painting when I had 100 followers on this blog and now I have 105. So to thank you all for following me, and all your encouragement and good advice and your great blogs that I’m trying to keep up with…



This is a 6″ x 6″ original oil painting on a gallery wrapped canvas with a little surprise on the side…

Hope you all have a wonderful week. πŸ™‚

    • Yes, it was…and it is amazing to get a phenomenal 6-7 eggs a day instead of the 1-3 we were getting before. I think we might finally be getting the hang of it…me and the hens, that is. πŸ™‚

  2. I love the post and love the painting. The “little surprise” on the side is a cute addition. Wonderful job on the tulip painting as well. Must be so fun to see something and create your own vision of it.
