    I want to let my nephew enter a dozen of our eggs at the local Grange Fair/ Farmers Fair.
    Does anyone have any idea how they judge them? What would a winning egg look like?
    Thank you for any advice.

    if you enter a carton of eggs, they want them all to be the same color and size. the point has to be down. they can't be wrinkled or misshaped. i was going to enter that in my fair, but i didn't know when to bring them and ended up missing it.

    In the County fair in my area, people can't bring small eggs. [​IMG]
