They become more precious when your own hens lay them and if your like us, we eat eggs like crazy! I was out of eggs last week, we even had to buy store bought eggs(yuck). I finally was stocked up with a nice colorful 18 pack and my nearly 18 year old dropped the entire carton on the kitchen floor.lol. Needless to say, she never got her ham omelet she was about to make. I had made hash browns earlier and omelets for the rest of the family while she was at play practice. Poor girl was looking forward to the omelet. Unfortunately we have zero eggs for breakfast, which I use daily making waffles, pancakes, eggs, French toast, ect... Oh well, we'll just hope the girls produce quick and hope I don't drop them myself from the coop to the fridge.
