I got another first egg from one of my girls today. I was showing it to my wife and one of my daughters who happened to be visiting and she said I should throw it away that you weren't supposed to eat the first eggs of a young chicken. I am no expert but I have never heard this. It's too late anyway because I have been eating the others' first eggs and plan to eat this one as well. Anyone else ever heard this?

I've heard the first egg story but it's nonsense. There's nothing different from a food perspective about any fresh eggs.
One should refrain from the desire to incubate pullet eggs however. Not enough space or nutrition.
