These are three different kinds of eggs. I wanted to show everyone why raising our own eggs is really worth all the effort. I know we’ve all read how much more nutritious the eggs are and we know how great they taste, but can you also see a difference?
Here’s our egg experiment group. The white egg is from the grocery. The brown egg is from friends who raise their chickens with just feed. The green eggs is one from our flock, pastured and supplemented with feed. Drumroll please!
Look at the difference!!! The grocery egg is yellow and small. The feed egg is a little oranger and medium size. But look at that pastured yolk!! Orange and large! You can see how it also holds its shape more than the others and is substantially fatter! So there it is folks, the reason we go through the work of pasturing our eggs!
You can judge a healthy hen by her yolks!
Do you have your own layers? Do you purchase pastured eggs? Do you think the eggs are worth the effort?
