It all started this Monday night when the temperature here in Lambertville dropped to a whopping wind-chill-factor of -20°. On Tuesday morning when we arrived at the studio, we went next door to our neighbor and insisted he bring his two hens indoors from their rooftop roost, just until the cold snap passed. But where would he coop them? Well, the shower stall in his bathroom seemed just the right place. By Wednesday morning, our neighbor, standing ankle-deep in straw, was showering with two chix. They laid two eggs in gratitude. This morning we had those eggs for breakfast: scrambled along with with a some slices of smoked salmon and an arugula salad with pickled red onions. Now we are shopping on Etsy for shower caps for the “girls”.
