I am so annoyed at my husband's coworkers. We have a small backyard flock who are spoiled rotten and lay gorgeous eggs. He took some to work just to give away since we can't use them fast enough. Everyone is afraid to eat them. They are collected daily and placed straight in the fridge, I made it a point to only send very clean eggs. They say they are worried about salmonella. Seriously? I told my husband to show them a picture of a commercial hatchery and also tell them how old store bought eggs can be. Some people even thing that store bought eggs are pasteurized or sterilized some how. Does anyone have a link to a good article I can print to show why fresh locally raised eggs are better than commercially processed ones? These are people working in an animal research facility (lab mice) so they should know a little better.
