Hi! I am a brand spankin' newbie with 7 babies ranging from 1-4weeks old. My neighbor has silver laced Wyandottes and offered us 18 eggs. With giddy anticipation, I made them yesterday (simple scramble on low heat)... While I know I am not "use" to fresh backyard eggs, these were NOT tasty...almost offensive, heavy with a "feed" taste. I usually buy my eggs at farmers market, from small lot farmers... I realize you are what you eat and I'm not thinking, based on what I've seen of my neighbors backyard, they get much more than feed and whatever they forage for in the dust. My girls are spoiled with their diet of fresh grasses and healthy kitchen scraps...please reassure me these gift eggs are unusual!
