Hen Lays Chocolate Easter Egg!


True story…I found a chocolate egg. My hens lay brown-shelled eggs, but never before was brown on the inside (with a bright yellow yolk)  !  ! What do you think? I wouldn’t lie.             It didn’t smell bad. It was a fairly fresh egg – only a few days old at most. […]

Crazy Dog…video


The dog has a mind of her own. So do I, but it doesn’t seem to matter. Everytime I tried to grab the ‘blanket’ she would take off again. She ‘talks’ to us. She’ll bring a leftover, over-chewed bone to us, plant it at the bottom of the container that she knows holds more, and then look […]
