    My beautiful Barred rock ladies laid three wonderful eggs today. Their first. Am I able to eat them? I mean, I know if I crack them and they look terrible I shouldn't, but if they look alright is it safe? [​IMG]

    You could blow them for sentimental reasons if you want.

    1. Post a picture of the eggs and upload it to BYC.

    2. Share the eggs with all of us willing admirers. [​IMG]

    3. Feast on your eggs in any way you desire (I personally suggest French toast, scrambled eggs with ketchup or Deviled eggs with extra paprika).

    4. Give your girls lots of praise and extra treats! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Absolutely I would and have.The first ones always seem to be the funnest ones to eat for some reason. Maybe because instead of you feeding them they are finally feeding you. Enjoy them
