As part of my dog walking fee I get fresh free-range eggs.
I had heard that there is no comparison between store-bought and fresh eggs, but to tell you the truth I really didn’t notice much difference. That is until the girls stopped laying last fall and I had to purchase eggs at the grocery store again. First off I was astounded by how expensive they were and secondly having been spoiled by fresh eggs for 3 years I could now tell a dramatic difference in taste, (the store-bought ones had very little).
Backyard chickens are becoming very popular. If you can find a local source by all means buy fresh eggs, I mean right from the hens not even the organic eggs at the store.
