Easter Egg Coloring

What better way to make a tribute to all the hens that provide us than to to color eggs and celebrate one of the great traditions of Easter!

Tip –
Add a teaspoon of baking soda to water before you bring to boil & that will help your eggs peel cleanly!


Chill your eggs!

We tried out an egg coloring option that involved whipped cream:

Heavily line a pan with whipped cream – YUM


Add food coloring of your choice – we went for a multicolor tie dye look!


Wash them off, lightly or more and Voila!

See the results & enjoy your Easter Eggs, whatever way you like them!

Animal domestication timeline

Chickens were late to the domestication party, but they’ve since been represented widely in art and cutlure.
