    Greetings from Kansas, twonewchicks, and [​IMG]! Great to have you with us! Lots of things you could with it. As your very first egg, you might with a needle, bore little holes in each end and blow out the contents - you'd have an empty egg as a memento of the very first gift your chickens gave you. Me? I'd eat it! [​IMG] Good luck - more eggs are on the way.

    Yay! Put it in the fridge. You can eat it right away or wait for another one to be laid to make more of a meal. Start collecting egg cartons from friends, because you will be getting more eggs!

    Oh, and give the chickens some treats.

    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] Congrats! It's been a few years since I got my first egg, but I still remember how exited I was. Hope that egg is the first of many dozens!

    Take a picture of it, post it on FB, tell the world, drive your family nuts showing it to them every 5 seconds, then eat it and tell everybody how yummy it was.
