Blue eggs in our future

I’m so excited that one of the araucanas I got has started to lay blue eggs.

The other araucana lays very pale beige eggs, which is disappointing (at least, I think that’s from the other araucana. No way to be sure, really, unless I catch her in the act or isolate her). But I was aware that might be the case. It’s why I got two. At least we’re sure to have one pretty blue egg once in a while!

That is, if the durn thing can keep herself alive. Last night’s henhouse head count shows we lost another hen recently – one of last year’s reds, a reliable layer. Why is it NEVER the hens that need to be retired anyway, that get taken by the fox?? I still have 4 old chickens to harvest (such as our previous blue egg layer, that hasn’t laid anything in almost a year now). I just can’t get up the gumption to do it. One of these days…
