Claudette Colbert & Fred MacMurray "The Egg and I"

I love old movies. Especially when they are restoring old houses. This one "The Egg and I", is a classic. It stars Claudette Colbert and Fred MacMurray, restoring an old farm house and starting an egg farm. It is a true black and white classic, right down to all the characters.

Years ago when my daughter was young we raised our own "Dirty Dozen" of Araucana Chickens with the great blue-green eggs. They were tons of fun and were oh so friendly. I will have to dig up an old pic just for grins and giggles. They were raised from baby chicks to full grown adults. Homemade chicken coup and all in our barn.

So, if you want a relaxing fun afternoon, watch "The Egg and I". You won't be disappointed.
