Egg Trivia

 

  • Which came first — the chicken or the egg? Depending how you interpret things, the Bible says it's the chicken:  “And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. And God said, ‘Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.’” — Genesis 1:10-20.
     
  • Although it is customary to throw rice at weddings in many countries, eggs are used in French culture...not for throwing, though.  French brides break an egg on the threshold of their new home before going in.  It is said to bring good luck and healthy babies.
     
  • There is no nutritional difference between white eggs and brown eggs; there is also no difference in taste.
     
  • Hens of most breeds can produce an egg in 24-26 hours.  Their bodies require 5 ounces of food and 10 ounces of water to do so.
