By having only two hens that lay eggs, I refrain from using those eggs in foods where you won't taste their true flavor and texture. I feel a tad guilty buying eggs from another source but hey, an urban homesteader has got to do what she's got to do.
So for kicks on the night before the boys came home, I cracked open some eggs and did a visual comparison. The eggs on the right are from my urban homestead; the other ones are free range, organic brown eggs from a local grocer.
If you look closely, the deep golden egg on the right is from Pox; the one on the left is from the older, scrawnier Chicken.
The four eggs look similar but yet, they are so different. I'll eat my homestead eggs over the ones from the local grocer any day. At least I'll know that my chickens had a hearty meal that may have included a gullet full of delicious and delightful larvae. Yum!
