Four Eggs!

My friend Herm and his wife Mary Jane have four new chickens. Well, not that new, actually. They have enough property for a nice garden, and corn, and now the chickens. Anyhow, Mary Jane is really excited because the hens have started to lay. She was showing me the cage that the chickens live in and then she opened the "egg box" and was overjoyed that there were four eggs in the box. I loved the lighting and the textures of the smooth eggs against the rougher straw. And of course you are going to say: "Wait, there are SIX eggs." Right, but two of the eggs are ceramic eggs that are left in the laying box to encourage the hens, so that leaves four "real" eggs. This was a test.
