    I am so sorry. I know it must be horrible to actually have to BUY eggs, and then THIS! [​IMG]

    I hear ya.
    This past Saturday me and three of my buddies went to the hockey game. It was over at about 10:00pm. Someone suggested a trip to Waffle House. I ordered three eggs over easy. Broke the yolk and I was done. Didn't eat a bite of those eggs.
    My buddies asked if they were bad, I said "I don't know and I'm not going to find out." " The color makes them look bad to me [​IMG]." The waitress asked if something was wrong as well and I said "no the eggs are not fresh eggs" She said "oh no, do they stink" [​IMG]

    Yup. No way I order eggs anywhere anymore either. They're just not right!

    LOL! Yep! I'm going to turn off the timer on the 31st to give my girls a break for the winter. I was going to sell my extras until I realized that I cant stomach the thought of store bought eggs and am gonna need them to get me through until spring. Let the month-long-stock-piling begin! I'd rather eat 3mo eggs from my girls than 2mo eggs from the store!

    I know what you mean. I ordered eggs at a restaurant and when I started to eat them it was horrible, I couldn't figure it out until I realized I haven't had any eggs other than mine in so long that all these other eggs are just the worst taste ever. I won't be ordering eggs anymore anywhere.

    I agree! Once you eat a fresh egg, one from the store is TERRIBLE!
