Lou sent me a picture of one of the hens that lays the Easter eggs. I'm not sure I got the name correct, but I think he said "Araucana." During the winter, the eggs are white, just like other eggs, but each year about this time the magic begins to happen and, voila! Easter eggs!
I don't know if Lou names all the chickens, but this one's name is Alice, after the chicken on Green Acres.
