I'm all for free range products...

but this is a little ridiculous. This is what I was greeted by when I opened my first dozen of eggs bought here in Scotland. I removed all the other eggs and let this one sit in the container for a few days; partially because I thought it might be the start of a new baby chick for the Murphy household. Apparently people enjoy seeing things like this because it proves to them just how fresh the egg is. I've been told I might also find feathers in a whole raw chicken.

Cock a doddle do. Are you kidding me? Was it broken when you opened the carton? Too bad it didn't make it during the refrigeration process. It would have been another adventure. Janet

It actually wasn't broken; I've been told that sometimes the chicken feathers just get stuck to eggs from chicken juices or something like that...who knows. I bet this will make Leah love eggs EVEN MORE!

Ha! Ha! Ha!

Remind me to tell you about my adventures at the local Pluck and Gut Chicken Depots in Trinidad. Not for the faint of heart.

P.S. sending you my e-mail soon.

I mean folks. Chicken Juices? Like from a chicken vagina? That is disgusting.

You're the one who wants to be a Murphy, Ross. Chicken juices come with the territory

Ross,
Ross, Here's a homeschooling moment. I googled how do chickens lay there eggs and a great article came up called "How a hen lays her egg." The vent is the name of the opening from which the egg proceeds and at the time of release it is totally sterile. No chicken juices. It's awesome how marvelously God created these creatures. Janet

Jennifer said...

yay for no chicken juices!

No chicken juices, but how about juicy chicken. Nice, juicy, rotisserie chicken. Yummy.
