I gather eggs on a daily basis. Much like a farmhand. Oftentimes I look like a farmhand. Sadly for me, I usually look this way when people show up unannounced. Happily for me, I don’t much care.
I know I clean up nice, so that’s really all that matters. Well, that and the fact that I usually lead the visitor right through a pile of chicken poop in the backyard, so we’re on more of a level playing field. I once stuck a piece of straw in my sister’s hair without her knowing and let her leave my house and hop in her car like that. Serves her right for always having her make up done and a matching outfit on. For those in the know … this was the sister that ate the perfect strawberry.
The other day I went out to bring in the eggs and there were 4 in the nesting box. 4 is always a thrill because it rarely happens. I might get 4 eggs in a day but it isn’t often that they’ve all laid them in a close enough time period that I gather them all at once. So, as I was saying before my own story interrupted me … the other day I went to gather the eggs.
The odd time there are things stuck to the eggs that shouldn’t be stuck to the eggs. A piece of straw, a wood shaving, a Captain and Tennille album. Occasionally there’s a tiny feather stuck to it. Which I’ve always thought was cute.
But when I brought the eggs in this particular time, there was a large feather stuck to one of the eggs. A rather large, fluffy, bum feather. Chickens have fluffy bums if you didn’t know. I’m not sure if I’m the only one who would get excited about this kind of thing, but I was pretty excited about the bum feather egg. Excited enough that I thought it warranted a picture.
Problem was … what was I going to do with the picture? I couldn’t in good conscience revolve an entire post around an egg with a bum feather stuck to it.
Then I started thinking what a cute Easter decoration it would be. And I’m not all that big on Easter decorations and pastel colours or even the word cute. So, it’s saying a LOT if I thought this was a cute Easter decoration. All of this led to my idea.

Now that that’s over with, I’d best go run a brush through my hair. And push my sister in the mud.
