Natural Magic

'Whoa! Look at that egg! Did you lay it?'

'You must be joking, look at the size of it. I am very proud of my large eggs but that must be XXL'

'OMG it's changing colour now!'

'And again, this is scary'

'Shall we try to hatch it out?'

'No leave it, we don't know where it's come from, or what's inside.'

'But it's magical, we could be out of business if more of these turn up. Who would want our eggs when there are ones like this around? We can't compete with that!'

'Yes we can. Every time we lay an egg, there is a little bit of natural magic going on inside this chicken coop.'

'We should be proud every time we lay an egg - size and colour doesn't come into it.

Wishing everyone a happy and very magical year from Inside the Chicken Coop!


  1. Wonderful photography as ever, a very happy new year to you, Di, and lots of success and happiness in the New Year. Hugs, Carole.

  2. Very funny, Di! It's the look on the girls' faces that got me!

    Happy New Year!

  3. What have you been feeding them, Di??? Luminous beetroot? Day-glo cabbage???

    All the best to you all for 2011!

  4. Hi Diane,
    Indeed, size and colour doesn't matter. Very good and it's started me thinking about Easter, for some strange reason:-)
    All the best for you and the girls in 2011.

  5. Perhaps you should bring some luminous eggs on retreat next year? I wonder how that would illuminate our writing!

  6. Hi Carole - The girls were perfect models in their photo shoot! Happy new year to you too!

    Hi Julie - They were so funny, they really were interested with that very odd egg.

    Happy New Year Denise! Although I feed the most ordinary of chicken food - there always seems to be magic going on inside that coop!

    Hello Gary - I look forward to Easter too, it's one of my favourite times of year as everything just starts to come back to life.

    Oh yes Simon, I think it would give everyone a huge flash of inspiration. Better not crack one open for breakfast though!
