    No haven't yet......
    My boys say just cook em mom we wanna eat em.....
    Although my 14 year old said lets have a taste test.....
    He said get as many white store eggs as we have home laid eggs(his term) Then I should cook them and each of us try them and decide which is better.......
    Of course he said that I must do this with out any of them watching so they can't just say ours is better.....lol

    I may just do it sounds like fun to me.......

    Quote:Yep, it's really a big surprise to see the first egg. I got mine about a week ago. A silkies, small but mighty.
    I really like the idea of a "taste test"; let us know how it goes.

    How exciting and they are beautiful eggs. Let us know about the taste test, but of course we know how that will turn out......We ate our first eggs within hours of being laid....oh my goodness, they were so tasty.

    Isn't it an honor to watch? and there's nothing like a warm, slick egg in the hand.
