Cafe Keeps Chickens Hatching

SEATTLE (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A cafe in Seattle keeps chickens working overtime thanks to their “eggcellent” menu.

Beth’s Cafe is a 24-hour eatery known for their massive, 12-egg omelette that’s custom made to order.

Owner Chris Dalton says several patrons a day attempt to scarf down the famous five-pound breakfast plate.

Its popularity has Beth’s ordering 10,000 eggs a week from farms – keeping chickens employed in this tough job market.

But while many try to conquer the enormous omelette, Dalton says only about two out of 10 people can actually finish it.

Those who do get through it – and the heap of hash browns it comes with – usually “look like they need to lie down,” right afterwards.

Because the cafe is open all night, many post-partying, tipsy customers order the 12-egger at all hours.

However, Dalton says the immortal feat is best attempted in the morning, on an empty stomach and clear head.
