So I have 4 hens (only 3 so far are laying) and my kids are freaked out with the "idea" of eating "home grown" eggs... my oldest son's 19th birthday was yesterday and he wanted a big birthday breakfast and his ONE request was to make the eggs from store bought eggs... we have a large family (6 kids, plus mom/dad)... the whole pint of getting chickens was to eventually not have to buy store eggs.... I had 14 eggs from my hens... I bought 18 store bought and used 6 "home grown" eggs for scrambled eggs... my husband is totally fine with eating the eggs.. in fact, liked them (fried the day before) very much... but AFTER my kids ate them, I told them... they were FURIOUS! hahaha... then later that day I offered my mom/dad some eggs because (at this point), I'm getting 3 eggs a day (hopefully the 4th will begin producing any day now).... so I didn't want the eggs I already have to go bad... MY MOM REFUSED THEM!!!! She said they kind of freak her out!!! ???? What is the deal... NOW... I have always bought white eggs and these are all brown eggs, but other than that, there is NO difference... even the yolk is the same color (I expected them to be a little darker yellow/orangish).... the funniest part is... I don't eat eggs... haven't for 25 years! BUT... usually, Saturday morning breakfast with 6 kids and a husband is a flat of eggs GONE... and now no one will eat them! ??? NOw what do I do?
