Hi all. Our wonderful chickens are starting to lay eggs!! We are so excited. Here is my question. I was told not to eat the first eggs layed, because they tend to have malformations. I have never heard this before. Thoughts?

Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.

There is nothing wrong with eating your pullets' first eggs. Even if there are a few miss-formations within the egg, nothing should prevent you from eating them.

personally, i use the broken / malformed / soft shell eggs to feed back to them and keep the nicer eggs for eating.

Hi and welcome to BYC - I agree with everyone - lightly poaching a fresh egg is the best way to appreciate the flavour IMO - enjoy
