I made my hubby some deviled eggs for work out of our bantam chicken eggs yesterday. He just called me and related the following story, and I had to share. Hubby is eating lunch when a friend of his walks up, hubby offers him deviled egg. Friend takes it and takes a bite, complements hubby on the eggs. Now the following conversation is what cracked me up. Friend: "Where did your wife get eggs this small?" Hubby: "Oh, we raise parakeets, if the eggs don't hatch she cooks them" Friend gagging: "Man these are BIRD EGGS MAN?!?!" After my husband died laughing, he explained what a bantam chicken was.
