    I have never noticed a difference.

    I haven't found an egg yet that tastes any different other than I think the bantam eggs are richer. We have about 15 different breeds of hens and all of their eggs taste the same. My preference is my Rhode Island Reds, but not for taste, but because they are so large. Barely fit two eggs in a super large frying pan....YUMMMMMMY

    Never noticed a difference in chicken eggs. Can I open a can of worms and say duck eggs?

    Just fried up Carmen's first egg. Served it to my daughter. She took three bites and said, "This is the best egg I ever ate". Then she sat down her egg sandwich and said, "But, I still don't like eggs."

    I have a friend who won't bake cakes without duck eggs.... she says it makes them taste much better. I can't tell the difference... but now she moved and no longer has the ducks.
