Went to my coop the other day and to my surprise I discovered a green egg. Since my hens have been laying brown eggs for weeks now I assumed it was a bad one and tossed it. Well I got another the next day and then two days later. This is great I have an EE in the group (as I learned from these forums). Silly Question --- Can I eat those green eggs?
I have Green Eggs! Can I eat them?

Yep - the color of the shell has no bearing on the taste or nutritional content of the egg.
My girls will lay brown eggs when they get started, and I have started buying brown eggs to get the kids used to the color. I figured they might balk at those brown eggs (I sure would have when I was a very picky eater as a kid) BUT they think the non-white eggs are cool.
I kind of wish I'd ordered some EEs with my group of girls now...
Visit my blog/webcam webpage:
They are delicious! Gobble them up!!
We also share ours with parents of small children (Green Eggs & Ham listeners).

Just thought I would check since I have never seen them sold in the stores. You have to admit that the first time you see one it just doesnt look natural. Thanks!
The first time I saw a green egg was as a little girl, when my aunt kept EE's...been a fan of them ever since!
I know of people that won't eat them because they aren't sold in stores so they can't be okay!!!
