Looks like you just gave CWS an idea if her flock grows too big.

A friend dropped by to pick up eggs. Since I am somewhat well known for my "color sense" (my father trained my color memory at an early age), all my friends bring their paint chips to me to help them decide on which paint goes with what.

Friend: Could you help me pick a blue for my bedroom. I want it to be somewhat like the sky before a storm.

Me: Sure, let's go out in the natural light.

Myrtle: Did you bring treats?

Me: No, Myrtle, we're picking paint colors.

Myrtle: Girls, the Big Chickens are picking colors. We have excellent color recognition! All ladies on the DECK!

Friend: Why are they all getting on the deck?

Me: Chickens have an excellent sense of color. (By now, I had isolated her choices to two, with one being the favored one).

Myrtle: Let me SEE! Let me SEE!

Friend: Okay, ladies, here are the paint choices. (She placed the paint chips on the deck).

Eggna: This one is not the same tone. I wouldn't use it with that one. (Signaling with her beak her disapproval, she then stepped on the rejected paint chip and pecked at the acceptable one).

Friend: I guess that's one vote for the color you think works.

Me: Let's see what the others decide.

All the girls picked the favored one and rejected the one Eggna rejected.

These girls might have a future as interior designers...

Those ladies are just so talented. I would always go with their choice whenever I am in a bind of indecision. I would even be willing to take them shopping with me and pick out the best of the best.

No kidding, Addie. They are so smart (and, they have good taste when it comes to paint colors). If I had the funds, I'd let them pick the paint color for their coop...

I personally would choose a very light soft blue for their ceiling (to remind them of the sky) and an antique or ivory white for their walls. Very restful colors for laying eggs. Then of course they might want individual colors for their nesting boxes.

Knowing them, they probably would want individual colors for the nesting boxes...Myrtle "might" just like lavender.

You must always pamper Myrtle and give her anything she wants. After all she is the Queen of the Coop. (Don't tell that to Eggatha though)
