Let's talk about the eggs, shall we?
Or maybe a moment of silence is more fitting. We have just started getting these eggs (some are for my neighbor) from my cousin Alisha.
Before that, we were trying to find eggs that had been produced by hens in a cage-free environment who had not been given antibiotics and who had been vegetarian-fed. That was a tall order, and there was only one company that seemed to promise all those things. I say seemed, because even though the birds were in a cage-free environment, that doesn't necessarily mean that they were treated humanely.
My cousin, on the other hand, adores her chickens and feeds them a perfect diet. That white egg in the center is a duck egg and it was huge (and tasty). The other eggs range from light to dark brown with brown speckles, as well as lovely shades of blue-green.
I only wished we lived closer so she and Ed could teach us all they know!
