    we have bought two sets of chickens from byc and we love them!
    i feed them laying mash, starter, crumbles, and canned whole kernell corn.
    why are the eggs way too strong in flavor.
    p.s.: love the forum

    Cause they HAVE flavor. I haven't eaten one of those paste tasting storebought eggs in years. If you want it to taste storebought, just feed your chickens that nasty "chicken house feed". [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC from SE GA. And i will be glad when I do not have to buy any more store bought eggs. They just taste different.

    Welcome to BYC! eat your own home grown eggs for 3-6 months and then try store bought. You will say "what was i thinking, my eggs are the best"!![​IMG]

    I agree with Indianfeathers and others. The first time I ate eggs from chickens that actually saw the light of day and ate green things, I was put off by the "strong" taste. But that didn't last long and now I find store bought eggs insipid. Enjoy!! [​IMG]
