HELLO & welcome to Garden Daddy here at the urban farm! It has been a while since I was with you last but you are not forgotten by any means. Yesterday, Tuesday, the little pullets really got busy. They delivered a total of 9-eggs including the greenish egg above that had to come from one of the Ameraucana pullets. I believe it was from the one named "Frances" that is a Brown-Red pullet. She was almost guarding the nest box area late yesterday afternoon when the egg gathering was going on and acting a little over protective in a way. But I thought you might like to see the "gifts" as they are coming in, especially for those of you who have never seen the tinted eggs other than the brownish tones most are used to seeing.
This give this Garden Daddy an idea about a future brunch theme..."Green Eggs & Ham" will be the theme I will use and make it work with these lovely, smooth and these almost moss green beauties. I can see a whole basket of them used as decor along with some sheet moss and maybe some other natural items...either berries or something like that.
I hope you are enjoying these little pictures and stories about the pullets. But I have really enjoyed having them here at the urban farm. So I leave you today with out ongoing gardening affirmation: "URBAN FARMING: ONE EGG AT A TIME!"


  1. You have a camouflage egg! I've never seen a green egg other than in pictures. Now, I want a hen that lays green eggs.

  2. Yes, we're all envious! (unless, of course, it tastes...well, ... green!) How are the other projects going? Harveting all over with?

  3. I have decided to call them "CELADON GREEN" from this point on. That is the only color I can find to describe them really. Today, I got 2 of these beauties so that means that 2 of the 4 Ameraucanas are laying at some space of time now. I am hoping now that at least one of the 4 will lay the pale, soft blue/sky blue eggs to go along with these green ones. Now if the Cuckoo Marans will start with their dark, chocolate brown eggs I will be getting close to a full dozen layers started. Thanks as always for following GARDEN DADDY!
