I find it funny after all this time I am still amazed when I collect the eggs from our hens. I don’t know what it is about opening the coop door and finding that little bit of magic that must have taken place and there is a fresh egg. I am thankful for our hens and I know they are happy roaming about freely, not caged, and they thank us with that beautiful egg. That is how I explained it to our children. And while it’s their job to collect the eggs, sometimes I can’t help but sneak out and feel the excitement of collecting that special bit of magic I know will be waiting.
