According to my local chicken farmer, the chickens don't lay as many eggs during the cold months, so what does everyone else increase in their diet to make up for the loss of the the perfect food ever created?

You have to keep the lights on most everywhere in the continental US. You can skip the calendula if you have growing grass still. The eggs (assuming they are pastured) will have more grains and fewer bugs in them.

Whites - cooked. Yolks - raw. The anti-protease activity is in the whites and is disabled via cooking.

Which eggs do you think are more nutricious: Vital Farms "pasture raised eggs" or my coworkers eggs? He lets them roam but provides feed (non-organic I think). However, I get the eggs like morning fresh.

I would go with the coworker's because they are fresher and the hens are probably eating grub in addition to feed.
