    I was gifted with a very cute little brown egg from a hen! Our first egg! Now how can I preserve it? It's like babies first rattle ... I have to keep it! Any advice?

    I would eat the insides after gently blowing them out. That way it will preserve well. There is a "how to" on the "Crafters what are you making for Christmas" thread today .

    BTW, congrats!

    Congrats! What breed and age? I'm waiting on my first egg... They are 21 weeks today, so I should have an egg by sundown right? Right?

    Thank you everyone! I'm so proud! [​IMG] I love the blowing out the egg idea! Thank you! I really want to keep it. Hubby thinks I'm nuts! Wait until he sees all the baby stuff from the kids I have boxed up! LOL

    The hens were hatched May 12th (sorry I don't have a calender in here and hubby is sleeping in the room that has one) and they are Dominiques. Love my hens! Pretty, sweet and now egg layers!!! [​IMG]
