Fresh eggs from the old chicken coop

A good reason to have chickens is to be able to collect fresh eggs and have a regular supply of delicious eggs to try new recipes. We visit this farm once a month but I would love to live closer to enjoy all the good things there.

And speaking of eggs... We still haven't gotten over Christmas and it won't be too long before we start dyeing Easter eggs! Mardi Gras is just around the corner, I just realized my blog turned one this month and I did not even notice, time flies...

Em primeiro lugar, PARABÉNS pelo primeiro ano de blog! Que venham muitos outros, Cris!

Que lindas as fotos deste galinheiro caipira. Me lembrou do sítio que meu pai tinha em Itu, quando eu era criança, exatamente assim, com esses ninhos feitos de balaio de palha e puleiros de troncos de árvores. Uma volta ao tempo hoje em seu blog, Cris! Beijos!

I love those nest boxes!! So original!! Much neater than the ones that I have (ugly metal ones). Some day I'm going to have new ones - maybe I could make some like them!

I like that cute little hen house! Your photos of it are really lovely Cris. The baskets make such quaint nesting boxes :)
We sometimes are given fresh eggs by friends at church. The shells are so much firmer and the yolks so yellow. Lovely!

There's nothing like fresh eggs. I miss living close to my sister and her chickens for many reasons, but fresh eggs are right up there on the list.
Happy Bloggity Birthday!

We have a chicken but I can never find her eggs! I can't believe how quickly time is going either.

Wonderful pictures again. I think I had chicken, when I have more place but our garden is too small.
