I prefer winter and Fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape — the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show. ~Andrew Wyeth

Squeeky Girl Post

Look at this. 
The Prospector came in from the hen house this morning with two bantam eggs.
Aren't they adorable.
Squeeky is our only bantam hen. She survives in a world of big, bossy, full sized hens.
"She's knockin' herself out these days.", the Prospector said, as he showed me her eggs. 

Three eggs in three days.

 "Go Squeeky!"
Our only bantam hen is eight years old now, but that little girl is still putting out the eggs.
Bless her tiny chicken heart. Her eggs are so perfect. They are beautiful little wonders. 
Guess I need to make a really small batch of cookies.


  1. she knows that she is loved
    and respected :)

  2. yeah Squeeky! Those eggs are so beautiful and you should be so proud.

  3. Squeeky is amazing. Her eggs are something special. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  4. What cute little eggs! Squeeky must be very special! Way to go, girl.

  5. How do you use the bantam eggs? Two for one regular egg?
    I get organic cage free eggs , they are yummy, I am lucky! They told me not to wash them until I am ready to use them. Also said they don't require refrigeration if you will use them within the week or two.
    I can't keep hens but I am thankful for those that do.
    The Beans In the tree are too cute for words.

  6. I love that you take pleasure in life's ordinary miracles. I do, too. A child's laugh, a sunset viewed through newly leafing trees, the soft breathing of the one you love napping on the couch...

  7. Yes, bless her heart! You GO girl!
