    My 5 month rirs started to lay eggs a month ago and I'm getting overwhelmed already by the number of eggs.

    Was expecting to be here in a month or two considering the winter and everything.

    But here I am with around 12 eggs a day. I spoke to somebody in a fancy market in Portsmouth but they weren't sure about all the regulations etc.
    I know they'll have to transported and stored at 45f and that it will have to say that on the carton too, I know that they don't have to be sized but apparently in nh they have to be graded and my question was how the hell do I do that.

    Also there's the fact that they lay double yolkers pretty often, eggs are different sizes ( the bigger ones are always double y) and very rarely I also noticed blood spots on the yolk and I've read that that's a no no good aa or even a grade.

    What do you think about the grading and what are other things that I should know?
