    HEY, I like them store bought eggs. Makes me feel good to look at my eggs against them eggs and brag that mine are better, better flavor, richer color. YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY! LOL

    I just wouldn't eat any eggs. Or I'd be out there in the coop, squeezing a chicken.

    pffffft yeah right who am I trying to kid

    and heres the worse part... we were at a small poultry auction last night and they had 14 doz eggs up for grabs and the top bid was 1.50 a doz and i told hubby to pass on them because we didnt need them... then i come home to an email from one of my regulars saying she needed all I had she was going to make her rounds (she buys for her family too).. It works for me cause i dont have to worry about different buyers... she takes all she can get..lol

    Quote:That's what I do. Store bought eggs have the most ridiculously pale and small yolks -- it's crazy! I haven't actually eaten a store bought egg in like 6 years, so I can't really compare their flavor. We use them in baking.

    We've had more than one occasion when the planets lined up and a good customer had to wait a day to get their dozen. Needless to say, we have often had to delay our own desires for a day. Usually, no big deal. We never guy store eggs. Unthinkable.

    Sometimes, I've even put a customer's order on a one day delay because I've gotten the word, in advance, from the boss that she needs a half dozen eggs for a certain recipe.
