    Well my best friend has been getting eggs from me. I asked her if she needed more and she said no that she hadn't had time to bake. I asked if she ever ate fried eggs (cause I know she does) and she said yes, but she didn't cook my eggs like that because they weren't pasturized like the eggs in the store. I laughed and said it wasn't milk. I informed her that my eggs were much better for her than the stores. She is still a city girl and has asked me crazy ?'s concerning chickens lately. Later I wondered about such things and googled it and guess what pasturized eggs is a new thing - not available here in the USA, but available. Here's the link if you want to read about it. http://whatscookingamerica.net/Q-A/EggPasturization2.htm

    She fried the whole dozen I gave her last Sunday and called and said "the shells were hard and the eggs were tasty."
    Before she ate them she also wanted to know if the brown and green/blue ones would taste different. [​IMG] Gotta love her though.

    I always wondered why people think that?

    I have a friend that ONLY wants the brown eggs because "They are healthier then the white ones."

    Boy, is she in for a shock when I toss in a few blue or green ones! [​IMG]

    Quote:That's what we were always told as kids. My dad will not eat white eggs, claims that they only had brown eggs as kids and that those white eggs are full of chemicals that make the shells white

    The only pasturized eggs I know about around here are the 'egg beaters' kind where they have been blended and processed...

    I've always heard the thing about brown eggs from people too - maybe they are right in a way because many home-grown chicken eggs are from brown layers, and they do have a better flavor, etc than most store bought. That may be where that comes from.

    I do like the 'theory' that the white eggs are white because of chemicals - that one gave me a giggle!

    I laughed to. I think I will have to tell that one to my friend as well. [​IMG]
