Today I was checking out a location for a wedding that I'm shooting in a few weeks, and it was located at a gorgeous farm on Sauvie Island.
Blue Heron Herbary is a sprawling family farm, dotted with lavender bushes and flanked by corn fields. A hen house greets you as you walk out towards the fields, and we got to meet their flock.
I asked the dude showing us around if they sold eggs, hoping to pick up a dozen, and instead he gifted me with 14!
I don't have any exotic plans for these guys yet, but I am sure looking forward to poaching some for breakfast in the morning. And getting to meet the chickens who provide you with eggs is always super awesome- it just brought back my itch for my own backyard flock. I even have the breeds picked out- what I really want is a big fat Black Orpington to sit on my shoulder. My goth spirit guide, the fat black chicken.
