When we were in Colorado last month, we got to collect eggs from my aunt's chicken coop. I am always amazed that you don't have to refrigerate your eggs when you collect them directly from the chicken. The chicken actually coats the egg in a layer of liquid called the cuticle which protects it from contamination.
If we could have chickens, I would have one named Steve. I know that's typically a boy name, but I really want a chicken named Steve. Don't ask why. Just go with it.
