The hens have been molting for the past few weeks which means there are chicken feathers everywhere and balding hens skirting around my yard. When this happens they don't lay eggs because all of their energy is going into making new feathers for winter.
Which means I have to buy eggs at the market if I need to say...make a birthday cake for my newly turned six year old.
One of the hens was feeling productive though during the hurricane and gave us an egg....
Can you tell which one is hers??



  1. Wow that is so cool! Love the cake! Hope it was a very happy birthday!

  2. ha! bravo for the run free hen!
    oh, but to look at that cake, and celebrate a birthday... hooray!!
