I bought my first dozen store eggs yesterday, since July of '08. Our production is down. I'm working on getting it back up with tips from another thread. In the meantime we have an order for two dozen eggs that are already paid for and only had 10 of our own eggs as of last night. So, sad as it is, the store eggs are for us to eat. I had one this morning and it was icky. Now I truly realize why people are crazy about our fresh eggs. We always get rave reviews but I'd gotten so accustomed to the good fresh eggs that I'd forgotten how different the taste really is. I really did have a hard time picking that carton out of the cooler at the store. I do believe that once this egg order is filled I won't be selling any more until our production goes back up. I know DH won't be eating any of the store eggs unless they are hidden in baked goods.
