New Addition?

What's new on the farm? 2 new chickens!  We (well mainly just me) are so excited about adding these two new chickens to our flock. They are Black Copper Marans

They will grow up to be a dark colored bird. Why am I so excited? Because they lay the most beautiful "chocolate" colored eggs. While I have never seen these eggs myself, I have seen lots of photo's of them, and I am sooo excited. We are hopeful that both of the chicks are hens.

If you want to see what color of eggs we are hoping to add to our collection, 

In the mean time, the rest of the ladies are keeping busy. 
Enjoying the green grass and bugs that were out of their reach all winter long.
(And the kitchen scraps I just gave them!)

Won't the dark colored eggs look beautiful mixed in with these?


  1. Hi,
    I love that second to last photo.
    I am so excited for the sweet new chicks. Looking forward to watching them grow.

  2. Congrats on the new additions! I am sure the new eggs will be a gorgeous addition to your mix!

  3. Cool! Those eggs are really awesome. Can't remember when I last saw some eggs with such pretty colours.

  4. Wow! Fresh eggs would make any cake better.


  5. chocolate colored eggs sound glorious, and it doesn't hurt that the chickens themselves are adorable. :)

    1. Right!! I am anxious to see how their coloring develops as they grow.
      Then bring on these glorious eggs!

  6. I would love to have my own chickens, chocolate eggs will be a nice addition to your already beautiful egg collection.

  7. I love your new chicks, Kris! Their feathers are such a pretty color. No wonder they lay such beautiful chocolate eggs. I'm looking forward to seeing them!!!
