so, i don't know why i waited so long but i finally ate two of the eggs my girls started laying last week. i scrambled two of them in my microwave with a little milk and they were delicious. there really IS a difference between store bought and homegrown eggs (yup, there's the "duh" part right?). it's just so very cool to be able to eat something produced in your own home/on your own property. now between the orange trees and the chickens i'll always have breakfast no matter what! as long as i have space to have them i will always keep pet chickens. i'm a lifer for sure now!
