Julia was Right

...when she said fresh eggs poach much more easily.

Of course, I first broke them into separate dishes to investigate and check for blood spots.  Apparently thin shells, no yolks and blood spots are all more common in the small first eggs.  Our chickens have been on layer feed probably a little longer than they should have been, so the shell was anything but thin.  Thankfully both of our tiny eggs had tiny little yolks to match and were blood-spot free.

Aren't those yolks yellow?

I poached the eggs, thinking that was the best way to experience all their egginess.  The yolks were so wonderfully rich and creamy and it turns out Julia Child was right, its SO much easier to poach a fresh egg.
