I don't really notice a taste difference, if that's what you mean.

But, I know that my chickens get to free range every day on 3 acres. They're content, healthy, and certainly not stressed.

Aside from those things, since I can't say 100% that the eggs for sale aren't from chickens with the same circumstances. At the very least I know that my eggs are fresher than the store bought ones, and not washed where as all store bought eggs here are required to be.

So I feel that yes my eggs are better than store eggs. Also, I don't have to drive half an hour to the store, I just need to camp the nest box. :3 Thankfully I haven't had the problem of them all going on hiatus on the same day.... yet.

I notice a pretty big difference in taste, especially with egg salad, for some reason egg salad tastes so much better with my girl's eggs. Scrambled and fried taste a little better, but the egg salad packs a lot of flavor when I make it with our girl's eggs.

Yes! Except hard boiled. I don't have the patience to let eggs set for a week or two before boiling to make them easy to peel.

Every other aspect, mine are better. Closest store bought egg is 40 minutes one way. I'm a bit biased.

add vinegar to your water when boiling. It makes a world of difference when peeling

And even better, boil them in an instant pot, they peel even nicer. But i would still rather just boil them with vinegar than wait on the instant pot to pressure up, cook, and then pressure down. I'm not that patient

Vinegar, salt, baking soda, never had any luck. I butcher boiled eggs.
I can't remember what store eggs taste like but I know I won't eat a store egg hard boiled or over easy,.
