    I used to have a link that listed all the benefits and approximate amounts of nutrition and omega fatty acids and all that. I cant find it anyone have such a list, I have been searching for about a half hour and cant seem to find the list I was looking for.

    That's because everyones is different. It really depends on how much variety they eat, and how much of it.

    For instance.... grass, clover, seeds, bugs, corn, and soybeans all have an effect on what makes the nutrients.

    Since commercial eggs all have the same diet they all have the same nutrient lable to go by.

    You could have your eggs sent into a lab and have them tested to see what you have.

    Try searching the Mother Earth News website for that info, they have a pretty good breakdown of it. [​IMG]
