    If you are still admiring it, I would blow it out so you can eat it scrambled but save the shell! I was saving all my girls' first eggs for the longest time. Plus I saved the shell from which my first GrandChick hatched, until the cat knocked over the shadowbox and most of the eggs shattered and scattered all over the floor.

    Quote:My EE started laying 17 days after my White Leghorn, and 10 days after my RIR. Her beautiful blue/green eggs were well worth the wait though. Although a little smaller than those from the other girls, they have the darkest yolks and the best flavor. I'm getting 5 or 6 a week from the EE, 6 or 7 from the others.
