Judging Eggs At the Fair

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm considering entering some eggs (not my chickens, though) at a few of the local fairs.  I have several to choose from but am not sure what the judges are looking for when determining what makes one egg better than another.  Size? Uniform color? Bright yellow yolks?
Can anyone tell me how I can choose the best of my hen's eggs to exhibit?

I know nothing about egg judging, but this page might help: http://www.poultryclub.org/EGstandards.htm big_smile

these sites are 4-H and FFA related but the criteria is the same. Also please put the eggs in the carton big end up. Hope this helps
