Hey, first post so please be gentle! We've got 4 chickens, they're all hybrids and eight months old. They roam free in our patchy grass covered garden, with a diet of juicy worms and organic layers pellets. Occasionally they get left over scraps from the kitchen, but no garlic/onion, just peelings and vegetarian stuff. Since they started laying at 21weeks, they've been on layers pellets, and the eggs have tasted superb, no smell. Being vegetarian in our house, and wanting to encourage organic laying, we switched to the only vegetarian (&organic) feed at the suppliers. That was 1 month ago. Since the switch we haven't baked with the eggs until now, and the results are very disappointing. The eggs have a VERY STRONG eggy taste. I know what eggs taste like, but even in a flavoured cake, its soo strong it overpowers everything. Even the smell of cakes are eggy. We've only fried/boiled our eggs until now, and the baking surprise is off-putting. Could it be the organic vegetarian feed? Has anyone else experienced the strong aroma of egg after organic feeding? The bag of feed goes out of date in 2 months, might that have an affect? Any help or input would be very much appreciated. Seamus, on behalf of Treacle, Peanut, Swam & Snowflake.
