I have been giving my chickens' eggs to friends since they started laying in October. I asked a friend the other day if he needed more eggs and he replied, "My wife doesn't like the taste." Now the main reason I went to all the trouble of raising day olds to hens was the taste. Store eggs taste terrible! I just couldn't believe someone would pass up farm fresh eggs for the junk in the supermarkets. Anyone else have this "unnerving" experience? Incidently, Merry Christmas to all chicken farmers.
