Egg Colours

I have a variety of chicken breeds, so I get lots of different coloured eggs, ranging from pale beige (almost white) to pale sky blue to olive green to deep brown. Some of the brown ones are so big they don't fit in an egg carton. I haven't figured out yet which of the hens is laying the pretty blue eggs; I think it's one of the hatchlings from last summer. Could it be Turkenstein who's being so clever?

April Fool

This is not what April 2nd in the Fraser Valley is supposed to look like! We got an inch or two of very unseasonal snow on Monday.
