Scrambled egg convention



If you've never been to a scrambled egg convention, you might try to find one nearby. They are quite entertaining. Let me be quite clear though, the menu is very simple: scrambled eggs without seasoning.

Topics of discussion will vary depending on the season. Today I heard a lot of chatter about bees. I guess one of the chickens saw a bee and that had everyone predicting an early spring. Worms have been beefier this month than last, according to Edmonia Lewis.

Today's convention provided lots of pretty chicken underpants sightings...however, one of the Three Janes was horrified I took a picture of her with slightly soiled pantaloons. I lied and told her I wouldn't post it. I rarely lie to the animals, but sometimes on Sundays I do, because I'm tired. They usually know I'm lying, so don't get all bothered by it.

Note: Scrambled egg conventions are held monthly at Apifera in order to keep our egg supply under control. While chickens shouldn't get egg shells [it can inspire them to peck at their own eggs], they love a good scramble. This was a 32 egg scramble. I taste test them, and let me tell you, best scramble ever.

The ultimate in recycling.

I don't understand the scrambled egg conventions. Are they cooked eggs? Are the chickens eating them or just pecking them?

Yes, they are 'scrambled' eggs. This was a 32 egg scramble.The chickens love them.

Doesn't it seem a bit...cannibalistic? ;-} Love the photos.

Somehow I find this very civilized, and the proper order of things. (btw, unrelated, but Aerophant has posted a special seasonal bulletin in your honor.)

I'm nuts I thought it was a joke --you know the chickens laying scrambled eggs--well I laughed anyway.

I guess I underestimated how so many had never heard of scrambled egg conventions.....

Haha, Katherine, I'd never heard of them either...but then I'm not in the farm crowd. And I don't see any soiled pantaloons.
