Aren't first eggs just the best! My first one, I thought was a rock the girls had dug up in their run. It was that dirty and odd shaped! I was so proud of my girl though. Proud & excited of each of them as they laid their first egg. Those are my keeper eggs. I blow out the yolk, write the date & weight of the egg & who laid it, then have them all tucked into a basket in my kitchen. Well, except for that very first egg which my rat terrier stole and shattered into a 100 pieces when I wasn't home one day. I could've cried.
