    Emerald has been broody for a while now.
    I attempted to contact someone local who sells eggs, but they never responded to my e-mails.
    Having looked into auctions and other ways to mail for eggs, it just didn't seem worth the effort and the time .. not to mention the money.
    As a result, today I followed the sounds of crowing, to a house in my neighborhood, and met a nice couple who vastly out do my excess number of chickens... and of coarse, they have at least one rooster.
    I offered to pay them for eggs but they refused my money and gave me a few.
    I don't really know what these are, mutts I imagine; what I saw of their chickens were bantys, but I think they may have had a couple larger ones, not sure.
    A couple of the eggs are just as large as our eggs.

    So far Emerald has not repositioned the eggs and put them under her, but we shall see.

    How COOL to contact a local chicken keeping couple and have them GIVE you eggs, too!

    I have my fingers crossed that Emerald will tuck those eggs under her and go for it!
