    But seriously, I dont know if I can eat it. I really dont. I know for a fact it was laid within the last 24hrs so that isnt the issue. I just dont know.

    Yep, I kept the devil from making me post yesterday about having to give away eggs because they girls have figured out this egg laying business and we're already getting too many.
    Congrats on your first egg roosmom. Why not blow it out and have it as a keepsake.
    Sorry Jennspeeps. [​IMG]

    Thanks Gritsar and LynnP, blowing it out is a good idea, if I can find the air for it. [​IMG]

    Quote:Jenn, I feel so bad that I want you to know you can have all my eggs for today, tomorrow and the next day. I have two dozen in the frig. Not sure what to do with all these eggs. Wasn't planning on selling them until spring.

    Hey! we found an egg in the nest box from one of our four 6 month old pullets!(sorry Jen [​IMG]) We have 4 of them so we don't know who layed it! [​IMG] [​IMG] But it's a small brown egg. It's either from one of our Red Stars or one of our Buff orpingtons.... [​IMG] [​IMG]
