I work in a microbiology lab in an egg production facility so can provide some info.

The chickens that produce commercial eggs are vaccinated to protect against salmonella and fed a consistent gain based feed blend so the eggs are consistent in appearance and nutrients. 

Farm eggs can vary depending on how the are fed. I buy local farm eggs. First, the color and richness of the yolk is definitely noticeable in flavor, as in alot better tasting. They are more vitamin rich especially omega 3 and vitamin A.  The quality will vary based on feed.

I prefer free roam pastured eggs, the chickens that lay these are free to roam and eat whatever they find like insects, seeds, worms ect.  these are probably the most nutritious. I get them unwashed and clean at home. There is a protective membrane between the shell and dirt/poo that keeps the inside of the shell sterile. Washing takes off the dirt and protective membrane. So was right before use. The shell colors will can be blue, green, yellow, really any color due to the various food sources.

Another farmer I buy from sells free range.  He provides feed and lets them roam so the chickens have two types of food sources. They are more consistent but still more nutritious better tasting than store bought.

I recommend pastured free range if you can find them.

I can provide some info on store bought options if anyone has a question about the options you see.  Ex. You see things like free range or omega 3 eggs that are different than standard.

Kind of backs up what I said earlier in this thread.

He said, "No fatty, don't eat anything!"

Yes. Have to agree.  And for that one, rico has earned the coveted milehiiu.... "salute of the day".

What day does he get the salute of the day?  He posted it June 4th, but you just saw it today.  Is the salute of the day today or is it a retroactive salute for June 4th?  And if it is June 4th, are you sure you didn't give somebody else the salute of the day for that day?  Then it would be the salutes of the day.  But if it is today, maybe his doctor has told him something difference since then, and the joke no longer applies?  Plus, Rico is leading in the weight loss thread, so maybe his doctor would say something different now.  I can't keep it all straight!

Funny stuff.  No salute of the day for you.  Just a milehiiu..... "Well done" of the day.   Figure that day out.   LOL

Oh, by the way.  Thanks for being a great member.

Thanks!

In case people haven't seen the movie I linked, Almost Heroes is one of Chris Farley's best.  Highly recommend watching it.

I second watching Almost Hero's. The bald eagle scene was the best.
