21 Eggs

My chickens laid 21 eggs yesterday!

I have 32 chickens and some of them are really, really old; so this is quite an accomplishment!  They must have loved the little bit of warm weather (although now it's gone again) and the chance to really free-range, pick through the new grass, and dig in the dirt.  During the warm days, I found them contentedly giving themselves dust baths under the pig's shelter.    

How can you not smile? 

A day is like an egg, you know
Self-contained within its shell
Filled with energy and purpose
And yet remains so very frail.
