Eggs~to decorate...or to eat!

Ok...as a farmer's wife...you learn to enjoy the fruit of the farm...whether you plant it, grow it, pick it or gather it. I've learned
to be creative with eggs and different egg recipes.
I even thought of making an egg recipe book....but lost track of
time...and well that was 30 years ago!
We cook and bake with eggs...and even decorate with them....
Hens cackle when they lay an egg...they are proud of their accomplishments!
I've made some mean quiches, egg frittatas, egg waffles, egg omelets,
poached eggs, deviled eggs....
Eggs that are fresh hold together in the skillet...if an egg is watery it is probably several days old.

IF AN EGG FLOATS...IT IS OLD....IT HAS AIR IN IT WHICH COMES FROM BEING SEVERAL DAYS OLD....
The best thing about eggs is that you can throw them...
I mean cook all kinds of things with them.
Did you know most chickens lay an egg a day. They don't need a rooster to lay an egg...they need a rooster to fertilize the egg though.
Most chickens start laying eggs when they are 4 months old...and the eggs are very little and cute at first.
No matter the color of the egg shell...the eggs are relatively the same on the inside. The yolk may be darker but they are pretty much the same!
Blessings,
Debbie

Your vignettes with all of your eggs are stunning. I love all the different way you have them displayed. Great info about the eggs also, I didn't know half of that. Now I am smarter. Hugs, Marty

Since you brought it up...I was about 22 years old when I learned that chickens lay eggs without a rooster. It was quite a shock to me! Now I know that eggs are the same, but my husband swears that brown eggs are richer. Just sayin'

I really love that nest in the last photo. So cute! It must be nice to have fresh eggs all the time, and I hope that you get around to making an egg cookbook. That would be awesome! :)
