    My Grandfather would always cut around the yoke eating the whites first, then would pick up the yoke with his fork and pop that in his mouth. "That's how you eat an egg, boy"! To this day that's the way I do it. Two great tastes from the same fresh egg..................ummm good! [​IMG]

    Quote:I 100% agree--hate to waste any yoke--never can sop it all up on toast.

    The wait was killing me, until this afternoon when I came across a dozen multi colored eggs from our local farmers market. It was the first thing I bought there. They weren't from my hens but the euphoria I was experiencing could have fooled me!

    I don't know why I waited until later tonight but I finally fried one up and dear mother...

    Perfection. I spent some time eating with my eyes and nose before cutting into the yolk and taking the first bite. The aroma, texture, and richness of the yolk... Why didnt i make toast? All this brings back how bland store bought eggs have been, and I can't wonder why even bothered.

    22 weeks. I think between the 11 remaining fresh eggs and 18 store bought eggs, I may be able to relax enough to allow myself to be genuinely surprised when they break into their routine. I may just pick up more eggs next week to add some color to my soon to be brown eggs. .

    There's nothing like going out and spending a bunch of money to stock up on farm raised eggs to get your hens to finally lay.
