Did you eat the very first egg your chicken gave you?

    I was told by a friend who used to raise hens "I wouldn't eat the first eggs".....

    Um, why not? [​IMG]

    I always do. It is fun to see and taste the quality of the new egg [​IMG] I wont eat it if it lookes strange inside but that has never happened to me yet. Enjoy the fruit of her (and your) hard work!

  8. I ate mine...personally!
    I waited until we had enough for my hubs and I to both have breakfast together, but I made sure I got the very first one. After all, I was the one who stalked them day and night for weeeeeks before I got it!
    BTW, it was the very best egg I have ever eaten in my life. I eat some every week from my girls, but none have ever been as good as that little brown egg!

    Eat up!

    Bright Blessings

    Yup. I waited until I had 3 of them, though, because new eggs are so small.

    I blew out the first egg of every pullet, and saved the empty shell for posterity.

    (Yah, I know, silly.... )
