I don't know about store bought free range eggs - it's the local, fresh eggs that have the really orange yolk and strong taste. The key is how long the egg has been outside of the chicken. smile

ok gawd here in this small town there *was...until it burnt down..a chicken mill...and i worked there..waaaaaaaay back lol..

first let me tell you...its not all as glorious as you may realize as ..in order to turn a profit and have the hens produce as many eggs as possible ...hens are kept at length within a situation where lights are left on almost 24/7 ..sorta like when we tell folks in here if they dont want birds to lay they have to cut back in daylight hours...

so caged and no cage means this and often you could go in an find ..sorry..dead chickens which would get caught in lights and be hanging there...an if they didnt get to them well they didnt get to them ...for awhile...

and yes jilly fresh...are eggs where the yolk is ***very orange with a very yolky flavor which is why most like the so called farm fresh...

now i brought out in some thread awhile back dont know what it was about...when you do buy eggs ..i noticed myself that when checking for cracked eggs ...the large were the same size as the x-large but not the price...and i believe whats happening there is when stores get so many cracked eggs they simply break down the remaining and slip them into the extra priced cartons ..another way to tell this is..

when working in a chicken farm your taught to pack the egg always narrow end down...and often again if you check the ones in your grocer you can see where this isnt how they have been repacked...reason you pack narrow end down is to help keep the egg fresher longer...

and the sign of a old egg..is a very thick clumpy white when you crack and drop...

there has been special shows on tv about all this... sort of like a underground study into it...free range that is...well again..its not all that glorious for those chickens ladies...a tv show aired about 6mos ago on this very subject.

i dont eat chicken pr bird as i am a bird owner, call me crazy but to me its like a dog owner eating cow accptble but at the same time is a bit strange from a species point. i do enjoy steak though as i have no dog.

I vote for treating animals well while they are alive. Then if they must be killed, do it as fast and painlessly as possible.
