    HAHA! Im so happy. My hen laid the first egg! Its so tiny! Its about the size of a large oval golf ball, or a small grocery store egg! Its brown, it was laid by a black star. What do i do with it?! Should I bake with it? Eat it on toast? Fry it? Scramble it? AHHH!

    Will it taste strange compared to my usual store bought eggs? Im so excited!

    It might be a fart egg, break it open and see if theres a yolk first.

    Congrats on your first egg. Here's hoping you get many more. Whatever is your favorite way to eat eggs gets my vote.
