Easter Eggs

I hope you can see the many colors of these eggs from Marin Sun Farms on your screen. I was charmed and surprised to discover, in addition to five conventional brown, there were also three pinks, a sort of lavender-mauve, a pale green, a whitish-gray and a tiny cafe au lait egg with dark brown spots.

Easter eggs!

It dawned on me when I opened this box why the candy eggs we treat ourselves to at Easter time are in pastel colors! Because wild bird's eggs and even domestic chicken eggs come in a variety of colors, mostly pale and subtle. A Eureka moment for me.

My religion has evolved over my lifetime from my Roman Catholic beginnings to more-or-less Pagan currently, so Happy Spring Equinox, people, and enjoy your Easter eggs!

I wish I could remember the breed. When I lived in Virginia, one of my friends had chickens. I'd go over with an empty egg carton and she'd fill it. The shells were all kinds of pastel colors. I haven't seen those kind of eggs since then.

That pale green/blue egg looks lovely - you just know the stuff inside's going to be good.

Dagny, these had to be from several breeds as they were all so different - really fun!

DMM, it was yummy! The yolk was almost orange.

Biggles, I forgot to photograph the insides - bummer - but you can follow this link to see the inside of another Marin Sun Farms eggie...
