Corn and Eggs (not a recipe)

The Spanish-speaking woman from down the street stopped by today asking about eggs.  We’ll finally have some next week (the 30-day withdrawal period from antibiotics finally ends then), so I asked if she’d come back then.  She said she would and much to my surprise and absolute delight, handed me a huge bag filled with ears of corn for the hens.  It was a lovely surprise and it will be wonderful to give her the eggs next week!

The girls will love their special treat and if they could understand it was received in exchange for their eggs, I think they would be pleased.  It’s a special thing to give food to hens who return the favor.  I can’t think of a more thoughtful way for someone to ‘buy’ eggs.
