Friday finds – eggscellent

6 Apr

Happy Easter! ‘Tis the season of chocolate, fruit buns and all things bunny and chicken, today’s Friday Finds is paying homage to this and asks the question…

What came first, the chicken or the egg???

First, the egg.

This growing egg, complete with little skyscrapers was created by architect, Matteo Cainer for the Art in the Easter Egg exhibition held annually in Rome. If you want to see more then head over to the website, it is in Italian, but the photos are fabulous in any language.

As for the chicken, how’s this for a chicken coop?

Created by Matthew Hayward and Nadia Turan in the UK, The Nogg is just cool, and not too big so it will fit in a suburban backyard.

I know that we can’t all afford a Nogg, but if you are keen to get some Eco cool chicken friends for your dream garden, check out Rent a Chook, and let Mr Chicken help you out. A try before you buy chicken keeping scheme, you can’t go wrong.

Please make sure you eat way too much chocolate this Easter, then I won’t feel so bad when I do!

      But speaking of Easter eggs… my sister and I were boiling eggs for Passover yesterday, and one of the eggs broke, leaking egg white into the boiling water. It cooked into the shape of a bunny! Somehow we didn’t think that news of this would bring hoards of Christians to the door the way an egg-white Jesus or Mary would, and we didn’t know any pagans to invite around…
