    I am so egg-cited. I finally got my first egg today. [​IMG]
    I probably should have researched this before the girls started laying and I hope this doesn't sound stupid, but how do you clean the eggs?
    The egg is perfect and has no dirt or poop on it. It is a lovely pinkish brown color. It was layed by one of my buff orpingtons, Bunty.
    Anyway, I would appreciate some egg cleaning advice and storage tips.
    Thankyou

    Congratulations on your first egg! How old is your BO who laid it?

    She is 28 weeks. I am hoping the other two will be following her example soon. My barred rocks are only 13 weeks so I don't think I will be getting anything from them until the spring.

    Thanks. I'm a huge fan of 'Chicken Run' and all things Nick Parks. The 3 buff are Babs, Bunty and Eggwina and my barred rocks are Wallace, Wendoline and Lady Tottington a.k.a Totty.
