    My chickens gave a nice surprise last night their first egg. I have been told the frist eggs dont taste good and should not eat them. Is this true? and when will they taste right if it is?

    Hi :welcome

    Congratulations on your first egg :celebrate Its always nice to find those little treasures in the nest box! Sure you can eat those first eggs, they are just the same as the ones that have come from hens that have been laying for a while. Get it cracked opened and eaten, I sure it will be delicious :thumbsup

    Good luck for the future and I hope you have more delicious eggs soon.

    I have not ever heard such a thing. I would be anxious to eat my first egg. Congrats on the first egg. I'm looking forward to mine from my new batch of layers.

    [​IMG]Pullet eggs are delicious and they make a nice fluffy omelet.
    Had one yesterday as my White Leghorn pullets are in full swing now.
    Congratulations on your first egg!
