A happy chicken, a happy nutrient rich egg! The chickens on my farm have a 5 star stomping ground! With 10 acres of rolling fields of grass to a pine tree forest at which they scratch for the bugs. They have to be the luckiest chickens, but my gosh they give me the best eggs! Yes I know what your thinking, we must get eggs everywhere? From time to time its like a treasure hunt to find the eggs but they are pretty clever little chickens and they tend to lay only in the barn and there chook house. You just can't bet the deep orange yolk.
There are so many eggs for sale on the side of the road in little hounsty boxs. We are incredably lucky still to have that in New Zealand. So your next sunday drive you take go out country a little. You wont have to drive far to find the eggs on the side on the road and you wont be dissapointed. They arnt like any egg you have ever tasted. They are happy chickens giving you the best produce.
Thank you chickens!!!
A few Facts :
Some store brought eggs are considered 'fresh' if the temperate at which they are stored in is lower than 45 degrees and they are not older than 45 days? Thats a month and a half!
Have you ever tried to peel a fresh hard boiled egg? Its impossible! Ican never get a good looking boiled egg into my sons lunch box. What I have recently learn't is that if its hard to peel the fresher it is! ( I seriously thought I was just hopeless!)
The whites of a fresh egg are pressed so hard against the shell, bits of the whites come off with it,making it hard to peel. The store eggs have been in storage long enough for some evaporation of the whites to take place and the shell comes off clean.
