My mom came to town yesterday. It was a chill little visit; just enough time for some antiquing, a walk around Olbrich, dying Easter eggs, and dinner out.

Check out these eggs! We tried a few new techniques, and it turned out the learning curve was a little steep. So we made a lot of ugly eggs, and a few really nice ones. But in the bowl they look pretty good.

And speaking of eggs, I’m picking up the brooder on Friday! I hope to get chicks by the end of the weekend, but that will depend on whether or not I can find a farm with the bantams we want. Otherwise I’ll need to talk someone into splitting a batch of 15 with me, so I can order them from a larger hatchery. Anyone need some chickens?
