    I poked holes in both ends and blew the shells out hollow. Made scrambled eggs with the contents and saved the eggshells. Am going to wrap some nice ribbon around them and hang them in my study, except I am kinda lazy and haven't been to the craft store in months...

    I saved up 11 more Banty eggs to join the first egg, then hubby and I had our first "home-grown" breakfast-for-dinner, together. [​IMG]

    I ate mine. [​IMG] I must have been off the day that the save your first egg came out. Actually I didn't get to eat it, DD dropped it and the dog got to eat it. Kids split the next 5 or 6 eggs, I didn't even get a taste till the 6th or 7th egg. I get 2 green/blue eggs a day for about a month and I have yet to be allwed to eat one of those. Do they taste any different [​IMG], maybe one day I will get one.

    I ate mine too. If you want, and if it's clean and not cracked anywhere, you can try hiding it in a cool place and letting it dry out. I have about half a dozen eggs dried and not blown out in my room. Just make sure they don't start smelling... because if they do...carefully walk up to it with a ziploc bag, slip it inside and put it in the trash before it blows.
