I turned my mom into an egg snob!!!

    When I first got my chickens 2 years ago, my mom swore she would NEVER eat and egg from them. Since they started laying I kept trying to get her try them, finally she did last summer. She liked them but kept buying the grocery store eggs.
    About 2 months ago, I sent her home with 18 and she loved them. She asked if she could have some more, so this time I sent her home with mostly brown and a few green and a few pink. She LOVED them..lol. She has been hooked ever since.
    Being that she lives 45 minutes from me, she had run out of eggs and bought ones from the grocery store. This morning she called me and said "You would be so proud of me, I cracked open an egg and I couldn't eat it...it turned my stomach. I realize now that I have become an egg snob!!" [​IMG]

    She said she will be down to get some eggs tomorrow and the dogs can have the grocery eggs!

    Mom is officially an egg snob! I am so proud! [​IMG]
