Marissa has painstakingly blown out some gorgeous eggs.  This is truly a  breathtaking art form from Abundance Farms.

Description: 6 blown eggs. You will receive a colorful assortment of three Black Copper Marans, one Yokohama, one Easter Egger, and one carved Pekin duck egg. Each egg has been collected from our various breeds and blown out for your decoration or crafting purposes. Eggs are blown out by using a needle to poke two holes at each end of the egg and then the egg is cleaned out. Very rarely do I make my Easter Egger's (her name is Waldo and she was my first hen ever) eggs available for purchase. She lays one of the most beautiful green eggs I have ever seen. So, why not take a little piece of Abundance Farms with you?

Winner: Robin Shake
