My garden grew by leaps and bounds in the week that we were on vacation. I returned to find all of this lovely broccoli ready to harvest. That is a first...no broccoli to speak of in years past!
On Sunday, J brought in this itty bitty egg, just a tad larger than a robin egg. (And no, it's not from the pullets yet!)
Speaking of the pullets, they are almost completely feathered out at this point. Not surprisingly, they are all different looking! 3 of them look exactly like our Barred Rock hens. Two of them are completely black - legs, beaks, eyes and all. I guess that there is a Black Wyandotte variety that looks similar, so we'll have to wait and see if they develop the rose comb of a Wyandotte.
Of the two white chicks, one is already obviously a cockerel, and the other has a single black feather on its back.
There is no end to the interesting things we find around here!
