I have a question for all you byc veterans! I just got my first half dozen eggs from my barred rock and one of my production reds this week. We are so very excited!! So I scrambled them up so we could all (6 in the family) try some. I noticed when I went to beat the eggs with a fork, before I did I could pick up the egg by it's white with the fork. It stayed there and just hung on. I have never been able to do that with a store bought egg, the white is always very runny. Is this because the eggs where fresh or is this strange? The eggs were of course small because they were first eggs but the shell was nice and hard...I am so proud of my chickies!!
