Haiku: Pearly Pullet Eggs

None of the geese (to date, anyway) have laid a golden egg, but an American Bresse pullet consistently lays a tinted egg that reminds me of a light champagne South Sea pearl. The small egg has a radiance that isn’t fully conveyed by the photos, but I think they hint at it.

Each new layer brings the promise of an egg that will delight and may surprise. Even though we’ve raised many different chicken breeds over the years, the striking beauty of their eggs never fails to dazzle me, and I find myself taking many photos of them. Jewels in the nest box!
