    I couldn't resist... I just had to break open one of my "first" eggs... they are so tiny compared to regular sized eggs.

    Sorry the picture is a little dark.

    I did the same thing. I'd heard such horror stories about thin shells, no yokes, etc. that I couldn't wait to see if mine were perfect. And they were.
    And are those eggs being fried in the second pic? I have to laugh, I took a pic of mine after they were scrambled. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] yes the eggs are being fried... the two big ones are "store bought" (i'm going to be the only one in my area selling farm fresh eggs!) and the little one is the one I cracked open... the egg shell was nice a strong... took me a couple of good whacks to break it open [​IMG] and then we shared it between myself, my dh, and my 2 girls... its so hard to share an egg that small between 4 people [​IMG]
