Our first new fresh house-laid egg. A second followed the next day. Time to get a taste of the product. Honestly, with butter, salt and pepper, I cannot say it’s any different from a grocery store egg. Darned good, but I can’t claim any magical house-grown egg flavor. Tried to do a semi-rigorous taste test, fully photographically documented. Just the fact that I was able to eat an egg that came out of that chicken is probably the most important bit…so weird…their bodies make that shell and there’s food inside and it comes out of the same hole as their poop, called the ‘vent’. The place the egg comes from (the cloaca) is actually physically separate from where the solid waste comes from (the intestines), but still, weird.
