    She loves 'em!!

    She had no idea that there was such a difference from the store bought eggs. When she saw the egg whites she was dumbfounded.

    This was one of the first four eggs we got on the 9th. I had to flip the yolk over to find the bullseye.


    And my lovely EE hen went and laid that beautiful little blue-green egg the first day, and then yesterday she laid me an AWESOME blue double yolker! Couldn't believe it!! My girls are doing pretty good for their first eggs. I didn't find any wind eggs at all. - And for those curious, my blue egg layer did come from my Ideal Hatchery order.

    If only everyone would be like your mom and realize what they are missing out on by not buying "farm-fresh eggs". Next thing you know, your mom will want her own hen. [​IMG]

    Congrats! I get tickled at the people who think that you have to have a rooster in order to get eggs from hens. I gave a lady at work a dozen eggs and she was saving them for some company she was expecting for Easter. I got to meet her company Friday before leaving work and when she introduced me she said......




    wait for it.....

    chickenannie, she'll have to live vicariously through me. [​IMG] First, she's not a bird lady at all. Apparently when she was a kid she had a bird poop on her while she was outdoors, and ever since then has had a phobia of any sort of bird. [​IMG] Second, she lives in a condo sub. No chickens allowed in her little yard. But I doubt she will refuse any eggs I offer her. [​IMG]

    Chicky Tocks ...... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] You gots some fancy chickens there!!

    Awesome. That is going to be the start of another chicken addiction.

    I never knew fresh eggs were so bright orangeish-yellow and how dull store bought eggs are. I was making a brownie dish w/cream cheese frosting, turned my frosting yellow. My MIL says its because of all the phosphorous (sp) aka green stuff they eat while free ranging.

    Too funny, chickens that lay eggs with a rooster. [​IMG]

    Roosterless eggs!

    How novel. It's all we eat! He hasn't learned to crow or do the dance.

    Fresh eggs are a joy to bake with!

    The thread of things city slickers say is so funny (I can't spell "hellarious"), and it shows just how far our society has gone from our agriculture beginnings.

    Isn't it amazing how each chicken has its own personality?
