Paul Bass: "And delicious. Looks like home; I have three Araucanas and three Buff Orpingtons, so my egg cartons look exactly like this."
Hugh Smith: "But which bag do (or can you) carry them in? Just wondering. Mi dos centavos."
Mike R: "Similar story here. My neighbor, who works in a lab at a pharma company, is at heart a wannabe farmer. He keeps a small flock, and his hens lay a pastel Easter basket—pale green, pale blue, pale pink, a sort of yellowish white. Plus the occasional brown or white. It's fun."
[The following two comments came in one right after the other —Ed.]
Chuck Albertson: "If you had green eggs you could have green eggs and ham, if you had some ham. "
Carl Blesch: "Okay, no Dr. Seuss jokes here, please?"
