I'm sure I've mentioned it on here several times, that I'm in the middle of a kitchen remodel (like down to the bare walls remodel). So far besides our contractor and his two laborers, we've had a plumber, electrician, drywall & sheetmetal worker here. No one leaves without a dozen eggs. The guys that make repeated trips get a dozen eggs most trips (I get around 3 dozen per day, plus a dozen quail eggs).
On Friday, the drywall guy was here and went home with eggs, tomatoes and HOT peppers from my garden. He was here again yesterday and I gave him some more eggs. He immediately opened the carton and pulled out a BCM egg and wanted to know what kind of chicken laid it. I told him the breed and explained a little about them (we struggle a bit with a slight language barrier between us). He almost had tears in his eyes when he said he hadn't tasted an egg like that since he left Mexico. I tried to explain it was the way the bird is raised and fed, not the breed, but he was excited that I had given him two more of their eggs in the new carton. I have to say, my BCM eggs are pretty nice (7-8 on the Marans chart), but I have a short moratorium on hatching until we get back from our vacation in Mexico, so everything is going into the eating eggs.
He'll be back to make a few more patches tomorrow (remodeling the kitchen, but while I have the guys here I'm making some miscellaneous fixes). I'm going to put together as many BCM eggs as I can gather for him.
