Egg by taffy

Egg

Friends came for dinner last night, bringing us a dozen "Burley Eggs" -- from the coop at Burley School (my friend is principal there and brought the coop to the school via Whole Foods donation). The coop goes along the edge of the school so the chickens get to free range during the day, then sleep in the coop at night. And occasionally, a new chicken will show up (dropped off in the dark of night). The eggs entertained me this afternoon.
Excellent, and most beautiful!

What an excellent idea for a school - so many kids have no idea where their food actually comes from. And who doesn't love a chook? And who wouldn't love this photo - it has a classic feel to it. :)

This is so beautiful Taffy! I love it! Fabulous processing! Sounds like a fun time with the eggs! How lovely that people drop off extra chickens at the coop! A brilliant idea for the school to keep chickens- so much to learn! Huge fav!

Such a beautiful image, I love the sweet background :)
April 2nd, 2018  
A beautiful presentation, such wonderful colors in the background that complement the feather and the egg. Honestly, to me this belongs on notecards, it is beautiful.

Beautifully done. I like the thought of somewhere to drop off the unwanted chicken :)
April 2nd, 2018  
Excellent.

@judithdeacon Cracking up!! Thanks for bringing a smile to my morning!

@suzanne234 @pamknowler The mysterious arrival of chickens is actually causing a problem. They built the coop to insure that the birds had plenty of room to roam and have their resting spots, and are in danger of overcrowding. People don't ask permission -- they just dump their chickens there. My friend is thinking she needs to put up a sign saying 'no vacancy' to keep the others from becoming too crowded and then having related health issues come up. I never knew chickens could be this complex! Thanks for the kind words on my photo, as always!

I had to smile at what you wrote above about chickens being complex! A no vacancy sign sounds a good plan!! Lovely soft image, really like it.
April 2nd, 2018  
Lovely still life. Very creative.
I knew a person who wanted to relieve herself of her rabbit so snuck into the petting zoo at night and released it. Imagine what came of that. LOL

Beautiful use of textures! Just googled the school and their chickens what a great program and fantastic images! Interesting to hear of the issue of the abandoned chicks!
April 3rd, 2018  
@ukandie1 We should go photograph one day...I'm sure Catherine would be up for it (I took photos last year for her school calendar for all the parents). When it gets warmer, though!
April 3rd, 2018  
That would be fun @taffy , but yes when it is warmer...spring weather would be nice right now! I think it is going to be one of those years when it goes straight from winter weather to summer weather!
April 3rd, 2018  
Wonderfully creative
April 3rd, 2018  
Wow, what a wonder composition and the narrative too. The processing is so unique I love it. FAV

Another winner...love how the sharp feather lines are echoed in the soft texture grass

Beautiful!
April 3rd, 2018  
Wonderful textures. Love the feather!
April 3rd, 2018  
Amazing processing, I can just about lift that egg off the screen. And the feather tops it all off perfectly.

Love your processing! Beautifully done.
Apparently chickens can get quite stressed about introducing a new one and reaffirming their pecking order.
April 4th, 2018  
You do more interesting things with textures than I could ever dream of. This is beautiful.
