I occasionally buy the fancier eggs, but am just as good with the standard buck fifty a dozen store brand. The fancy eggs taste a little better and have a brighter color, but sometimes im buying a lot of eggs and don't feel like paying double.

I know, i'm an awful human being eating sad chicken eggs.

Which came first? The chicken or the egg? It doesn't matter. They're both delicious fried in lard.

Pasture or free range may just mean that chickens a kept in a cage out in a field with no rules about how crowded or clean they are.

Visiting Arkansas I saw a bunch of low structures randomly positioned in fields. I ws told that when enough poop built up a tractor would drag the cage and chickens  to a new location.

Check out Joel Salatin. He moves his tractors every morning so the birds have fresh grass and grubs. Most delicious eggs you'll ever have.

Don't care. Had eggs.

Sure there might be some health benefits to some of it.

But don't care had eggs.

No. You're not an awful human being, just one not enjoying backyard eggs.

The hen who lays the green eggs refuses to eat the layer crumble I provide. She digs all day long for grubs and the like. Her yokes are nearly burnt orange and the most delicious I have ever had.

Store bought food labels mean almost nothing. Seriously. "no steroids" or whatever bullshiat. Guess what, the fda banned injecting cattle/chickens/etc with steroids long ago, so it's not an FDA/USDA *SANCTIONED* label. It's just the truth that anybody else allowed to sell you meat in a grocery store COULD put on their label. The only lable that really means shiat is the USDA grade, and that's just for beef.

Nothing matters. You could raise a chicken in a pool of human shiat and still put all those nice fancy labels on it

I'm all for treating the yardasauruses humanely, just not going to pay 7 bucks for a dozen eggs. And the wife doesn't like farm eggs (I know, I know).

There is a local farm up the road that supplies the local grocery stores. They sell for $5 a dozen and are worth it for the base quality and freshness compared to the mass market eggs, including the mass market fancy (expensive) eggs.

Unless you're buying directly from the farmer, you should assume any labeling of eggs are bullshiat.

That would have been funnier if instead of the egg falling over, the chicken had burst out of it Alien-style.

I only buy eggs that have been rubber stamped.
That way I know they're really eggs.

In the latest food scandal to emerge in China, customers are being duped by fake eggs made out of resin, starch and pigments.

The only good thing to come from the pandemic is that the early hoarding forced us to look elsewhere for our groceries.  After we went to our local Wegman's to find most of the produce and meats gone (along with most of the dairy), we found a good CSA that allowed us to buy a good portion of our food direct from local farmers -- eggs, meats, fruits/veggies.  We spend a bit more, but the quality is definitely worth it.

I've gotten too many small-sized and thin-shelled eggs from EB to buy them anymore.

there's only ONE really important "code" on an egg carton: that little 3-digit number is the day of the year they were packed.

for example today is day number 125 of this year......

and worried your eggs are now too old? just put one in a glass of tap water. eggs that float are too old, toss them. cook the rest!

Those are broilers, not layers, there are no nesting boxes.  And the cages are there to keep the predators out more than they are the chickens in.

Considering how poultry are frequently kept those are downright spacious with access to fresh air, grass, dirt, and insects.
