Whether you celebrate Easter or Ostara, this is the time of year for eggs. Our hens have been working overtime to keep up. We have 26 hens and get about 16 to 18 eggs per day (over the winter, they only produced 6 to 8). This basket is one days worth.

We have 4 araucana, 3 barred rock, 1 comet and 2 mixed breed. The rest are buff orpington. The araucana produce blue to blue-breen eggs, the mixed breed hens produce blue-gray eggs and rest produce various shades of brown. You can see from the basket that there is quite a bit of variety.
