Hello friends, welcome! Follow along on our chicken, beekeeping, gardening, crafting and cooking adventures from Cape Cod.

  • Is that a little egg? How charming is that? Did one of your girls lay it there? Happy Easter…

  • Yes Faith, that is our first egg laid by Dolly, a Silkie Bantam, since she raised her brood. It is about half the size of a standard egg. Silkie Bantams lay the most adorable miniature eggs. Similar to quails. Happy Easter to you and your family!

  • Happy Easter to everyone at Tilly's Nest. From our home, to yours.
