    Well my RIR girls are 20 weeks old today and this morning I was treated to our first egg. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I'm not sure how 5 people are going to eat 1 egg but every one wants a taste. I hope the rest of the girls start to share with us. Here is a pic next to a large store bought egg. Not bad for her first egg.[​IMG]

    Thanks fldiver97,
    It was tough but every one had a taste of the white and a dip of yoke on toast. this was my wife's first fresh egg. She was very surprised at how much more flavorful they are. I think she is hooked now.
