Ok, story: I checked the coop yesterday, no eggs. Nick moved the tractor today and checked the coop around 4, still no eggs. At 8, I finally get the bug up my but to provide my girls with a nest box (a foot tub with hamster bedding in it) and go out to put it in the coop. I open my specially designed egg hatch to set it in, since the girls were already upstairs for the night and i almost set their new nest box on two (admittedly tiny) brown eggs! Well, I guess that rules out Peep and General Tso as being the culprits.
I wiped them off a little with a dry paper towel, not wanting to clean them too hard and remove their protective oil.
I put them in one of our egg cartons (we've been hoarding them for some time)
...and then I went and showed the neighbor kids, who were pretty pumped.
I think in the morning I'll poach them. That seems to me the best way to experience them in their purest state.
