It has been a while since I posted. Sorry, with work and recent physical problems, I was way behind on everything. All the chickens are doing well. In fact, Sunday, we went to get some new chicks. Our local Rural KIng had pullet chicks in and I saw some Auracanas I fell in love with. And they lay colored egs. Anything from light blue to dark blue, green, and a pinkish beige. I picked out five and each one is a different color. Auracanas come in different colors and patterns. It may turn out these are Ameraucanas, but the sign said Auracanas, which have not tails and tufted ears. Then below it it had an explanation of Ameraucanas, which have tails and beards and cheek muffs. So will have to wait to see which ones I actually have.
A few days ago, I found a really strange egg below the roost. It had no shell, felt like a water balloon, and had a tail. Here are some pics of it.
Zoomer and I may have found some land. We have looked at a place that is a little over 7 acres. Most of the property is on the top of a hill, all wooded, and at the base of the hill is open area with a creek running through it where we could have gardens and animals like goats and alpacas. We may be making an offer on it. Keep your fingers crossed that they accept it.
