Have you ever paid $40 for a dozen eggs??
My sister-in-law and I did.... at the Mudgee field days on Saturday.

We are very egg cited about our purchase and have left them in the hands of an eggxpert who is going to incubate them (surrogate mother hen) for us...... (Maybe Trish would like to look after them!)

Hopefully we will have a family of little chicks soon.
(I don't think 'the boy' is going to rush in and build a chicken tractor yet!)

These very special little eggs were treated like gold on the way home, even wrapped in baby bibs I was putting some applique on.
The babies are supposed to be, 'silver-laced wyandotte' when they hatch.
(I hope this doesn't make Chooky clucky!)
