Someone remind me why I spent so much time agonizing over which breeds to buy? Carefully chosen to provide a spectrum of shades of brown egg? Because they’re all exactly the same color.
I laughed when I opened this picture to crop it in Photoshop. I briefly considered deleting the poop from the eggs with the clone stamp tool. (I’m not above occasional use of the clone stamp tool.)
But then I thought, You know what? I think it’s good for people to see poop on eggs. That is the truth about eggs. They come out of a chicken’s butt*. They have poop on them. That’s how it works, baby!
And as long as I wasn’t going to clone stamp away some POOP in that picture, why bother to clone stamp out the coffee ring on the sideboard?
So there you go. There’s poop on the eggs, and a coffee ring on my sideboard. Conventional wisdom is that you should wait to clean eggs until you’re about to eat them, so that’s what I do.
* Not to be graphic with the biology lessons, but chickens only have one “hole.” (You’re welcome!)
