Drumroll, please....

Since the appearance of our first egg, we've been adding them to the blue bow l and waiting for there to be enough of these homegrown beauties to taste. We gave the first egg to our super-fab, chicken-tending neighbor, EJ, and finally racked up 5 more---sufficient to scramble, serve, and dole out to the hungry masses. (never before have I felt so much like the lead in a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie...)
The verdict? These are some gooooood eggs. Even the kids noticed. The yolks are more orange than yellow, and the shells are thicker than those of our usual, bulk-bought eggs. They taste "eggier," Akiva says, and I'm inclined to agree. All in all, worth the wait, the work, and the worries...now if the rest of our little brood could get their laying in gear, we'd be in business!
