Halloween Costumes

So I love Halloween. Like, a lot. I have had many really cool ass Halloween costumes through the years: The allegorical figures of Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll, The Axis of Evil, The Divine Comedy, The Poe Toaster and his offering, Masque of…

Our first BLUE egg!

So when we bought chickens, I was adamant that we get some aracaunas because… well… Danger Bob really, but also because blue eggs. Well, Miss Violet has started getting rogered by the Roos, so we figured eggs weren’t far behind. And we were right!…

Eyeball Cookies
