    Oh, sorry. I guess I should clarify. [​IMG]

    They're eating eggs, from mixed breeds, and they're all brown.

    Wow, it apparently varies a lot depending on the area. We have one farmer that sells them for $3 per dozen and everyone thinks he's crazy because there's a bunch of locals that sell them for $2 per dozen. $4 dollars a dozen?!?! WOW. [​IMG]
