    Anybody out there ever heard of such a thing?? I have been getting two eggs every day from my beloved Dominiques for over a month now. I can't even think about eating one of their eggs without getting nauseous. Hubby was raised on a farm in Iowa and said he has heard of people not being able to eat the animals they raised, but never heard of someone not being able to eat the eggs!!

    I was the same way for about 2 weeks, then I got over it.

    All I can say is that you are missing out on the healthiest, yummiest eggs you will ever find--FROM YOUR OWN FARM!

    Today is the first time in a week that I have eaten eggs. I just got tired of them for a little while.

    Go buy a dozen from the store. Have an empty carton on hand. Tell DH to mix em all up (make sure you buy ones color matched or as close to yours as possible) and see if that helps? So maybe ya can't tell the difference at first glance?

    But you'll be able to taste the difference... and you'll happily toss the store bought ones. [​IMG]

    And no, don't feel bad... even with rave reviews from us, in laws, and friends my Sis and Mom still won't touch ours.

    I havent gotten any eggs yet, my birds are still young. BUT I was feeling pretty awful about eating chicken for a while. And that was not chickens I raised. I totally understand.

    If it were me, I would bake some banana bread or something and add one egg from my hens, and the rest store-bought. Then if that tasted fine, I would probably feel better.
