    Hey everybody!!
    Just thought you'd like to see my first eggs!! Just found these!!
    The reason they are $40,000.00 eggs is that I fell off a ladder and shattered my right heel while building their coop! One metal plate and five screws later have finally started walking and been able to return to work. I was out of work for 4 months.
    I am so excited!!![​IMG]

    Bristow, ok
    You have expensive tastes! Glad you are on the mend but at least you have a good story to how much your first home raises eggs were.

    This proved to be a much more expensive undertaking than originally anticipated!

    I think you should blow out the eggs (like easter eggs), then gild them!:lol:

    After the cost of a coop, fencing, feed, various other chicken related purchases and the cost of the girls themselves. ...I remember looking at my first egg thinking this is the most expensive egg I'll ever eat!!
