Sun Bathing Hens and a White Rabbit Egg...

I love Easter, it gives me a chance to play with eggs and dye. I am on my way down to the basement to bring up my  pysanky egg stuff so I can get busy. These are some fabric eggs and pysanky eggs from last year.
Yesterday the sun peeked out from behind the rain clouds and my chickens to full advantage of the rays!
I made some Papier-Mache bunnies last year as are cute and easy. Thought I would share the idea. I believed I used blown up balloons (the kind creepy clowns make animals out of) as the frame and then used liquid starch and newspaper. A little paint and some ears and your done. Very fast and fun.

Coincidence that I was just asking my mom about paper mache we used to do as kids. Don't see it used much anymore. Love you bunnies.

Get a look at those chickens soaking up the rays.

Have fun! You are talented! The eggs and the bunnies are very cute. Wish I could let my chickens out, but besides the fox problem it is raining. I get another day off.

You are such a creative girl! I love the egg with the rabbit on it. Looks like Peter Cottontail. My girls are loving the sun, too! The first time I saw one taking a dust bath, I thought she was having a seizure!

The eggs are beautiful. I bought myself a kit for that years ago . . . it's gotten quite dusty as it sits there intimidating me.

Happy chickens!
