Farm Fresh Eggs, Not what you’ll see in the grocery store!

Have you ever opened a carton of eggs at the grocery store and wondered: how are they all so perfectly identical?  Well, the answer to that question is simple.  Someone gets rid of all the eggs that look different!  Not that they go to waste mind you.  Unique or misshapened eggs can be used in egg products and such, but you won’t see them that way in the grocery store!

The fun of having farm fresh eggs is more than the excitement of finding them each day or even watching a chicken lay an egg (which is a very big event for the chicken by the way), but we also get to see all kinds of chicken eggs.  Real.  Just the way the hens lay them.

For example:

Farm Fresh Eggs, not what you'll see in the grocery store!

I collected these just the other day.  As you can see, that front one is a monster!  And as is usually the case with such eggs, inside it contained two yolks!

And it made the yummiest scrambled eggs 🙂

  1. Great to see you on dragonshades. Your blog is full of fresh and enthusiastic ideas and you have a great family and tractor!

  2. Loving your blog and site… you have my hubby’s and my dream. We are working towards our own farm and have a small place now with chickens. (Love the fresh eggs). We are working to figure out where our next land purchase will be (as we hope it will be our last). We want to raise our kids on a farm (chickens, goats, pigs, garden, etc) as we both were. I think it instills great values and work ethic in kids 🙂 Enjoying exploring your site 🙂

  3. Once you go fresh you will never go back. Here is to hoping that my flock will give me enough for the winter.
