    This afternoon, dear husband offered an "egg in a hole" to one of my sons. I had to sheepishly admit that there are no eggs to eat in the house.

    How did this happen? The first time in over a year I've had to go out and buy eggs...

    Let's see--could it be that most of my eggs are in the incubator?? LOL Actually, it's more a matter of the fact that I only have two laying hens at the moment, and they are both moulting.

    Anyway, the other part of this is that I shelled out the big bucks for organic, free range brown eggs at the grocery store and I tell you--good grief--I can't believe people even call these "eggs." They are pale, tasteless things with yolks that dissolve as soon as you break the egg open.

    Obviously, I'm spoiled. Some people actually eat these things on a regular basis and think they're getting a "premium" product. [​IMG]

    You poor thing! Hopefully, soon those anemic store eggs will be a distant, unpleasant memory.

    LOL we recently wormed out chickens with Wazine-17 and haven't been able to eat any of the eggs for almost a month. [​IMG] [​IMG] But lucky for our chickens they have been getting to eat eggs every day for breakfast now! [​IMG]
