Easter 2009

Just a quick post with some pics from Easter. Iris really enjoyed coloring the eggs this year. Or maybe I should say coloring her hands. Since none of our chickens lay white eggs I was curious to see what we would get from brown and blue eggs. They turned out very much like white eggs. We did have an interesting thing happen with the purple dye though. It just peeled off. I dipped one in blue and then purple. But then the purple started rubbing off. Same thing with red then purple. I had never seen this before. It made for a cool effect on the eggs. Has anyone else had this happen? The bright orange one I thought was cool because the spots are natural. I'll post more pics of her hunting the eggs later.
