    My pearl white started laying just 'till yesterday.[​IMG] But I'm wondering when I should start eating the eggs. When did you start eating them? I just don't want to start eationg them to early and throwing up or anything like that. I could really use some help. Also when do eggs expire? Bye for now!!!

    Eat the eggs!! [​IMG] You can eat the very first one laid. Eggs last quite a while, but mine don't last long enough to worry about before I eat them..

    Ok. But are you sure it's ok to eat the first one. This is the first batch of chickens I have ever had. Thanks!!

    Not a problem in the world about eating the very first egg. Eggs are living things and will keep several weeks.

    Agree, we have eaten everyone of our girls' first eggs. In fact the first one was gently fried in butter and cut into 4's and shared by the kids and my husband and I!

    So, eat it and be happy, I promise, no puking!

    We shared our first egg with all the kids too! Eat away and enjoy the fruits of your labor.

    Hey guys thanks for the advice. That help so much. What breeds of chickens do you have? Just wanted to know.
