Winter life at our small urban homestead

Our first eggs!

Well, our first ceramic eggs (psych!), newly minted from my studio. They go in the nest boxes cause chickens are very vulnerable to peer pressure.

Other ceramics projects this winter: Rattling Egg Men. They’re eggs! They’ve faces! They shake, rattle, AND roll!

    Nice plates!! I love the leaves. But poor chickens… it somehow seems sad that they are subject to peer pressure to produce 😀 They should be happy chickens!

    Here’s a question Pete and I had last while watching “A Far Off Place” – how many chicken eggs do you think equal an ostrich egg?

    One account I read said 8 chicken eggs for 1 ostrich. But then you gotta deal with ostriches! Chickens can be sweet, and if not they’re small enough it’s easy to put them in their place. Not so the ostrich.
