Overcoming many problems, I finally got chickens last spring. By the time they were old enough to start laying we had 3 hens (originally had 5). I saved their 'first' egg....a friend was going to blow them out for me and I was going to make a little display....nevermind.....I already know I'm goofy. So, I had them sitting in a half carton in the back of the fridge for the past however long.... they are easier to blow out when they are old. Somehow and at some point I combined them with the others and just discovered it. I remember going through the fridge a while back... and don't know what I was thinking but I must have been in another world not to have remembered why those eggs were by themselves. I am heartsick. Why didn't I mark them or something????? It's so silly but I really wanted my girl's first eggs. So, I am going around the house today, crying, and thought it might help to come to BYC to express my grief. Yea, I feel like something died. I am so mad at myself.
