This is Amelia – named for her early interest in flying over obstacles that the other chicks would walk around. Amelia, and her puffy-cheeked daughters, lay blue eggs. She was bred from Araucanas and Ameraucanas – two breeds of chicken that originated in South America. Amelia passes on her blue eggs and feathered faces to her chicks, but, so far, feather color seems to be dominated by our white Wyandotte roosters. We all hope you enjoy the uniquely colored eggs!

How did your first farmers’ market go? It would be hard to pass up those beautiful eggs.😊
Hi Debra! Thanks for asking. The market went really well and we sold out of eggs and all but two baguettes. Plus, we had lots of fun!
So happy for you and your husband.
