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.
