My husband and I are on our first year of chickens. They just started laying right before christmas. So here is the thing, We have both had fresh eggs from our friends chickens and we loved them. But our eggs taste weird! My husband says the yolks taste "bloody" or "off" Honestly I dont think they are as great as our friends either. I know they are new to laying, also it is winter, and the eggs we were getting were from summer. When the chickens can free range for greens and bugs etc. We feed DuMor feed. We were on Grower feed until they started laying, then we switched to Layers feed. I also throw out a cup of scratch for the 12 of them every morning. I bring them snacks a couple times a week. Bread, celery, cabbage, tomatoes, and sometimes cheese or noodles. Why do our eggs taste so different? Is it because they are new to laying? Not able to free range in the snow? Also, we turned a rooster into soup the other night. He didnt have much flavor either. Whats going on?
