Lucky Day

I was on my way to collect eggs from the coop and found 4 four leaf clovers and then collected two eggs instead of just one. Then later I sold one of my 4 roosters. I need to sell one more. I am still on the hunt for black copper Marans. Maybe I could find some to buy at one of the fairs. 
 I have to start making a birthday banner with a band theme. Now to go organize all the materials.

I am now starting to reap the benefits of raising and keeping chickens. The bugs are being eaten and the lawn fertilized and they are almost like kids. Dad collected the first egg yesterday when he let them out to free range for the day. Exciting to start getting eggs and today another egg, it was smaller and lighter in color so I am wondering is it the same Hen? I really can't wait the younger blue ameraucanas to start laying blue eggs. I am also looking to get two Chickens that lay dark chocolate brown eggs. No luck so far. I don't want to start with babies again. It was hard with no place but in our small home to keep them then God blessed me with a free coop from a neighbor to raise them in.
