    "Cool Cookbook"
    Pros - awesome pictures, fun recipes...
    Cons - none so far...
    I haven't tried any of these recipes yet, but they look great! The pictures are nice because rather than just being store bought brown or white eggs, they have photos of green and blue ones, as well as the hens themselves!

    "Great Cookbook Everyone Here Should Check Out!"
    Pros - Great recipes, sound chicken keeping advice
    Cons - A few mistakes in the chicken keeping, but minor (Maran for Marans etc.)
    We had our family Christmas celebration last night, and my niece gave me a copy of The Fresh Egg Cookbook by Jennifer Trainer Thompson. If I'm reading the title page correctly, this is a new book, with a 2012 copyright. I've not seen mention of it here on BYC and just finished a search for it.

    It is fantastic.

    Lot's of fundamental recipes for egg-based dishes that have been "pre-prepared" to death in most modern cookbooks. It also has some basic chicken keeping information and nice photography throughout...not just food porn, but shots of her chickens, too. I highly recommend it to anyone with eggs in their refrigerator.
