Re: Farm fresh egg's???

We keep 3 hens and get about 1.5 doz eggs a week. I like it because they are fun little birds to watch, they eat all our kitchen scraps (more profitable than a compost heap to me), and the eggs we get are so good. In the winter I can go to the coop to get eggs so fresh they are still almost body temp! If you crack open a fresh egg the yolk will be yellow and the whites will be firm and circular in the pan. If you crack open a store egg the yolk is often VERY pale yellow and the whites run like water out of the shell. Yuck!

Nope no need to refrigerate if they are fresh. But once you put them in the fridge...they need to stay there. So, either/or. I just keep mine in the pantry and take eggs out as I need.

Re: Farm fresh egg's???

The way they keep commercial chickens is nauseating. They are literally walking all over each other, roosting in their own urine and feces. They never see the light of day and are fed a horrific diet which is scientifically engineered and has added poisons like arsenic, which helps keep the shells harder. You will notice when you switch to real chicken eggs that their shells are a lot thinner and easier to crack. I don't know about you guys but I don't eat food that eats poison. Yuck!

Re: Farm fresh egg's???

We have 6 young hens, 4 are now laying. They yokes are so yellow and the eggs are great. The "girls" are easy pets and love to be loved on. I highly recomend them as pets- they are quiet except if they are afraid or they are singing their egg song.

The amish sell eggs at farmers market for 1.50/dozen which is about 2 dollars cheaper then store bought organic.
