Features of a [perfectly normal] Fresh Egg

Oh backyard chicken eggs. They are so delicious! And so misunderstood. Most humans know eggs as a yellow rubber disk that comes on their favorite fast food breakfast sandwich and do not realize real eggs have…features.

If you’re thinking about selling or giving away backyard chicken eggs, here is a handy infographic to stick in the carton. It is designed to assure those who buy your eggs that everything is going to be ok. Trust me, you’re going to need it.

Check out my youtube video about why you shouldn’t be selling backyard chicken eggs in the first place.

    My work colleague, the lovely Dr M, sells her spare chicken eggs at work and there is hot competition for them. We know what fresh eggs look like and more importantly, TASTE like. The word is delicious. We take them home and gasp with joy at the yellow/ orange yolks, we see the blood specks and understand that this egg is part of the chicken’s life cycle and is a individual. We taste the heavenly ‘egginess’ of it and give thanks to Dr M’s chickens and we most definitely promise ourselves to make sure next week we get the eggs before Roger the Baker snaffles them all!

    So True, I only sell eggs to get rid of extras, people are so ignorant of information about eggs or any truly fresh food product!

    I so appreciated your sharing the story of your daughter. As a psychiatric nurse at Johns Hopkins Hospital, I see a lot of young adults with similar challenges. I wish they all had such insightful and caring parents. Your story gave me major goosebumps and tearing eyes. Thanks for all you do and for taking the time to share with such meaningful articulation. From a personal perspective, whenever I’m feeling down, I watch your video on the hazards of raising backyard chickens. It always gives me a lift and makes me smile!

    “There was a speck of poop on one.”
    Okay. You’re lucky I didn’t charge extra for the free fertilizer.
    But the best? A lady bought eggs, came back six minutes later FUMING. “You said these were FRESH EGGS. LIAR.” Uh, huh? Those were still warm from the coop. You want them fresher, feel free to walk behind my hens all day.
    At which point she shoves….
    …….wait for it….
    one of my blue eggs in my face. Because the shells turn blue once they have been frozen.
