Comments On - The First Omelet

No, David, we never found Gwenny. It's been more than the 21 days it takes to hatch a clutch of eggs, so I'm afraid apredator found her roosting somewhere and carried her off. No sign of her, just like no sign of our barn cat, foxy. I'm guessing coyotes. I see them around the neighborhood all the time. We are very sad.

I can't say that I was ever creeped out by eating an egg that I stole from chickens, but then again I grew up on the farm. My task was to gather the eggs without getting pecked. Some times wasn't too happy about gathering eggs with the mother hen decided it was time to hatch little chicks.

Did you ever find Gwenny?

I can totally relate. I felt the same way the first time I ate eggs from my chickens. Actually, I'm now feeling that way about eating meat for the rabbits and chickens we've raised. After having eaten two, I'm still trying to get over that hurdle. I think the meat might be a bigger hurdle than the eggs were. It will take longer for me to get over the squeamish feeling.
