Has anyone read anything about local fresh eggs helping with outdoor allergies? They say that local bee honey can help with allergies based on the fact that the bees eat the pollen from the local plants and therefore help you build up immunities but couldnt the same be said about free range local chicken eggs?

I suffer from outdoor allergies and I swear that since I have started eating our eggs from our free range hens they seem to be less.

any thoughts on the subject or am I just crazy?!

I have heard the same thing about local honey. Whether or not the same can be said about eggs is uncertain. It would make sense.

Honey is made from the pollen, eggs are produced by the hens. The process is not the same, since the bees don't eat the nectar to produce the honey, but the whole idea of local products does carry a certain allure.

If it works for you, then...

Perhaps there is nutrition you are getting from your local eggs that is not found in store bought eggs. What a chicken eats will affect the make up of the egg.
