Clara provided dinner for us tonight. It was a momentous occasion, having our first eggs for dinner. Joe made scrambled eggs with peppers and onions.
Photos were taken and there were lots of oooh's and aaah's as we cracked each one open. The largest egg (the first one she laid) was actually a double yolk.
I had read that sometimes the first eggs laid may have weak shells. Not Clara's! The shells were much harder than the store bought eggs. Each one's shell was perfect, smooth and beautiful. The yolks were a deep yellow-orange... and dinner was delicious!
With each egg she gives us, she seems to make less noise, which is good for the neighbors (who thought she was making rooster noises... sheesh... city people!) I guess it must get easier with practice!
