straight from the chicken’s rear

March 18, 2009


My intention today, as I took my camera to “work” [it still feels like a guilty indulgence to call it that!] , was to take a sort of an action shot, snapping a photo as I went down the zipline. On the way, however, a stop by the chicken coop afforded the delightful discovery of a hen in the process of laying her eggs. Unfortunately, she was finished by the time I got my camera out, so you will have to take my word for it that the green egg that I just boiled came directly from some flustered feathers. FYI, the golf-ball-looking “egg” here is precisely that: it is left there to encourage the hens to lay their own eggs, competing with the Layer of the Golf Ball.
