    This egg had almost no whites and a HUGE yolk. Makes me wonder how the chick would have done if I'd incubated it.

    Relax! Eating eggs doesn't give you high cholesterol.

    Before we had chickens I had a cholesterol problem so this certainly isn't helping. [​IMG] They're just too yummy... [​IMG] Luckily I haven't gone in for testing in the labs in a while so ignorance is bliss... [​IMG]
