I sell most of my eggs to a professional pastry chef and the rest go to a few regular customers at work. I occassionally give a dozen eggs to someone to try and "hook" them and most of the time it works. The other day, a coworker I gave eggs to said she would buy them if she didn't have to eat all of them herself because her family turned their nose up at farm fresh eggs. Her husband said, "Ewwwww... that means they have been pooped on...." How can people be so incredibly ignorant. Do they think the commerical farms never have "accidents" or "skid marks"? Why do all their eggs have to go through a commercial egg wash and be pasturized? People would be amazed what the seconds look like that have stains or imperfections that go to commercial bakeries. Is it just me of do you find it slightly offensive that someone could diss a backyard egg producer like that? I have never sold a dirty or cracked egg or a less than nice looking egg in my carton! We eat all the eggs that aren't the perfect shape or color. Nobody has ever ever complained about my homemade banana bread or my cookies or my cakes - everyone begs to have a second or third... really?
