    Great article. Breezed over it and saved it to my favorite for future reading. I like everthing I have read in Mother Earth so far. I've got free range hens and there is no doubt that the eggs are far better than a store bought egg.

    Great article, thanks for bringing it to everyone's attention. My DH is very cholesterol conscious, so it is good to know.

    Edited for spelling. I wish there was spell check here. I never get it right the first time, sometimes not even the second or third.

    That is an awesome article. I think MissPrissy posted that a few weeks ago when I was looking for nutritional info on free range eggs (so I could make my flyer).
    I wish everyone who bought supermarket eggs would read that...hey, maybe I should make some copies of that and leave it just "lying around" in the break room at work...might get some more sales!
