welcome to our farmhouse…life is good

Tuesday, March 19


Conundrum is defined as:
"a  logical postulation that evades resolution, an intricate and difficult problem."

Today's conundrum...

1 day
5 happy hens
7 eggs

I have 2 questions...

Number one: How is this possible?
Number two: How soon can I expect a golden egg?

This isn't the first time we've been surprised and collected more eggs than we have hens. A joke, perhaps? Well, our nearest neighbor is a dear man of 77 who is not the prankster type, and our trusty farm dog is always near the hen house...she would definitely let us know if there was anyone nearby.

I absolutely checked the nest boxes first thing in the morning...empty.
At day's end, 7 eggs are tucked inside.

Here's my advice to anyone considering buying chicks this year...
find. these. breeds.


Tetra Tint
Golden Comet

There's just something magical about them!
