Now there's a funny thing!

Hi everyone in blogland. I told you all about my sweet chickens earlier in my blog. Well I am pleased to update you on their progress. They are now laying 6 eggs a day between them and lots are double yokers, and we have even had a triple yoker. I took this photo because I didn't think that anyone would believe me. Honest there is no trick photography involved.

On a stranger note, we went to collect todays eggs and found this little tiddler in the straw! Not sure what happened there. At first I thought it was a dove egg as we have them living with us too, but it is the wrong colour. Am baffled, has anyone else out there had one as small and what about the triple it common, should I be in the Guiness Book of Records, ha ha!

Found this lovely vase in Merchant Chandler, it isn't hand painted it has pretty paper wrapped around it but for £3.99 I thought it was sweet.

I also fell in love with these two items, but want to paint them white before putting them in my kitchen. Will show you photos when done.

We had one of those tiny eggs from one of our hens. They are called 'witches eggs' and I believe there is old folk tales told about them but I can't for the life of me remember them now.
