How gorgeous are these eggs? I especially love the blue/green ones. They’re available for trade here in Oakland, the craigslist ad reads:

“Our hens are laying way too many eggs! . . We have Silver Phoenix, Araucanas, Wyandottes, Marans, Buff Orpingtons, Rhode Island Reds, Welsummers, Black Australorps, Blue Andalusians, Light Brahmas and White Stars. They have a huge hillside and yard to play in and a large pen to roost at night. We feed them organic vegetable scraps, grains, chicken scratch and if they’ve been good, worms from our compost bin. We allow them to live out their days on our little hillside in the Oakland foothills.”

Sounds like a pretty awesome life. These also remind me of the paint line Martha Stewart did based on the colors of the eggs from her hen house. (can’t find it or remember the name right now . . . anyone?)
