news & happy hanukkah with first egg

Hello there and welcome to a non-poetry post.

This evening begins Hanukkah, candle 1, and guess what? Our chickens laid their first egg. How appropriate, a blue Hanukkah egg from the “Easter Egger” chicken breed! A multicultural egg for sure!

We have 6 chickens – 2 “Easter Eggers”, 2 Speckled Sussex, and 2 Bard Rocks that we raised from tiny chicks in July.

We are also enjoying home-made jelly donuts for Hanukkah, called “sufganiot,” home-made for us by Sarah, the Queen of Cupcakes.
