A Single Grain Of Rice.....

A couple of days ago I was getting one egg a day....

And then, on the 12th of March it happened......there were 2!!

And on the 13th, there were 4....

Today......there were 8!!!!

At this rate, according to Indian folk lore, by the end of a month I could rule the world.


  1. I've got 40 plus chickens running around the yard. I know they are laying but I'm not searching under every tree or shrub. Do you want to come add to your egg collection?

    1. Oh my word!!! Come spring you are going to have little baby chicks everywhere!!
