Homegrown VS Store Bought Egg

Thinking of getting chickens this spring? Here’s the main reason to do it: homegrown eggs taste amazing.

Here’s a visual representation of the difference.

On the left, an egg my chicken Rosie laid. On the right, an egg from the grocery store.

* Yolks orange * Yolks yellow
* Whites fluffy * Whites watery
* Cooks fast * Cooks slow
* Tastes 1000% better * Tastes fine

We can’t have chickens in the city, municipal by-law against it :( But we can get farm fresh eggs, maybe not delivered daily, but lots of farmers markets and local stores sell them. Where I grew up, our neighbours sold eggs so mom would send us over to get some. :)

Melissa A.: That sounds great. More places should have farm fresh eggs available to buy like that.
