Wow! An Egg-cellent comparison!

Alright, sorry for the corny pun. I couldn't resist.  But seriously, check this out:

My friends in North Carolina posted this picture on their facebook page along with the heading, "Are eggs from free range, organically fed chickens different than those you buy in the store? You be the judge. Free range eggs are on the left."    I was so impressed by the clear comparison, I asked to post it here for all of those naysayers who give me a hard time about getting chickens.  (Finger wagging here.)  It's pretty incredible to see the difference. I can hardly wait for my little hens to get to layin'!

Blessings to you and your homestead!

  1. There is nothing like a farm 'fresh' egg! People dont realize how 'old' stores store eggs! From chicken to store shelf can be up to 2 months! Love your site! Blessings, Dana

  2. Yes, and now that we've gotten our first eggs from our own hens, we were amazed at how dark orange the yolks were compared to the Eggland's Best fortified eggs we had been eating! The age and the pasteurization definitely alters the contents.
    Thanks for stopping by Dana! It's always nice to hear from you :)
