Eggs Are Beautiful

Living in the closest thing to the country that I ever have, I spent the last six years trying to convince my Hubby that since we are zoned for animals, we should at least get some chickens.  Now, after hatching and growing a dozen or so from eggs, I thought I was in over my head. Seven months after the endeavor began, we have been feeding them with no output.  Today, we, really I, was rewarded with one tiny, light brown and perfect egg. I was so excited that I took a picture or three and emailed them to my husband, who promptly called me and with all sincerity said, "I bet you're really excited".  Little did he know that that one little egg could somehow lift my spirits, that I did not even know were a bit down.  Yeah, apparently he gets lucky when I'm happy.  Talk about unforeseen circumstances, hahaha.

Oh, the white one is a store bought Grade A large for comparison.  Woo Hoo!  We have eggs, well, egg.

Did you eat it? How did it compare with the flavor of the store bought egg

Of course! I'm not sure if I can explain it. It tasted much more eggy. It was a richer more complex flavor. The yolk was much deeper in color and stood up high and compact when cracked. I loved it and I can't wait until all the hens start laying. It's scary how excited I am about eggs. Who knew?

We have had one tiny egg a day since, and my sentimental one loves the eggs that are just his size.
