    I just had to post this!
    I sell eggs to people at work, one being our staff Attorney. Her 18 month old daughter will not eat any other eggs than mine. She tried giving her eggs from Denny's & McDonalds and even tested her with Store bought eggs last night. They cooked two of mine and two of the store bought. She kept spitting out the Store bought.[​IMG] Had to tell hubby since he is always giving me a hard time about wanting more chickens....he was impressed! [​IMG]

    Store-bought eggs are just not nearly as good as the ones laid by your babies, IMO.

    Strangely, my mother disagrees. She says that the eggs from our girls have a strange texture about them. I never noticed this, maybe I just love my girls too much to notice it. [​IMG]
