Oh the fun my kids get to have when it comes to coloring eggs for Easter. We have ducks, bantam chickens and regular hens. Our egg collection is vast with light brown eggs, white eggs and even light blue duck eggs. It’s such a fun hobby for the kids to collect those eggs everyday. It is even more fun during Easter as they can decorate the small eggs, large eggs, and extra large duck eggs.
Yesterday they collected their eggs and last night they had the joy of coloring some. I thought I would share some pictures of the farm and where our eggs come from!!
These are our mallards. I try to get a few every year as the kids enjoy raising them until they are old enough to fly off. The whole neighborhood celebrates as the ducks take their first flights around the yard, then circling above the houses making larger circles every time and eventually flying off. In the spring a we will head back to our ice skating pond and there some of our previous ducks will be enjoying their old stomping grounds. These will probably not fly off for another few weeks so the kids are enjoying them while they can.
These are our larger hens with our only rooster “Flash” who is a bantam size. He was born and raised with us and thinks he is a dog!! He loves to sit on our feeder looking in the back window.
And our banties
Here are the eggs collected, cleaned and colored
