    My girls must have gotten into my garden and into my spearmint. Two of my eggs tasted like spearmint and as much as I tried to muscle through the weird flavor, I couldn't handle it.

    On a brighter note, my OEGB pullet started laying the cutest, little eggs ever!

    My gals haven't touched my mint for some reason, but now I know what will happen!

    I wonder if this will have lasting side effects on your eggs or if they don't eat the mint tommorrow maybe their eggs will be normal again...

    I believe they will be back to normal if they stayed out of the garden. I hope so. What an unexpected surprise. [​IMG]

    I have been wondering if certain foods could effect flavor, now we know!
