    Can you eat the first few eggs? The chickens have been on laying crumbles for two weeks.

    I wouldn't eat them if I were you. You should send them to me. [​IMG]

    it depends on how long you kept it sitting on the counter to show off to your friends and family. mine has been there for nearly a year. I probably shouldn't eat it.

    We threw our first egg over the house today and it didn't break! [​IMG]
    So we got to throw it AND eat it. Is that good luck?

    We blew ours out and kept the shell... then scrambled up the insides and fed it to the hen that laid it. She loved it.
