The first egg!
A chicken laid an egg, although I am not sure which one. It was small, speckled and a lovely shade of brown. The shell was a lot harder to crack than the normal white grocery egg. It was delicious for breakfast.
I have to say that it was a odd experience to gather ones own egg and fry it up. Exciting and rewarding yes, but after being brainwashed by the food industry that eggs are white and a size large, you really have put your mind in the right place. The same sort of thing when you eat oddly shaped vegetables from the garden, I guess. Will there be a day when I feel gathering an egg from the coop and eating it is "normal"? I hope so.
