We care for this little acreage along Highway 1 in Johnson County, Iowa. If you come by to visit you can meet a few kids - both of the two legged and four legged variety- a couple of dogs and a whole lot of chickens. And two fairly tired but happy parents.

Blue eggs for sale!
Their first eggs!
Yesterday when we went out to check the nesting boxes we saw one of the smaller hens, Tina, was laying her first egg! We let her be and sure enough, when we went out later and she had left us a turquoise egg. We were so excited! Today, we went out and the other Ameraucauna hen, Piper, had also left us her first egg! We are excited because that means all of our hens are finally laying.
