Your farmer is brilliant--another new angle to hook people! I hate to break it to you, but there's no difference between a pullet's egg and a hen's egg. The difference you're tasting is in the quality of the eggs period. Yes, a pullet is a hen... (more)

Yes and no. We had free range hens and color does vary with the seasons, what they are eating and how many bugs and how much green stuff they like is available. In the middle of Summer you should see a deeper yellow yolk in a truly free range hen.... (more)

Is there vitamin C in raw eggs? My logic goes that if an egg contains all that is required to complete a living chicken, then maybe vit-c is one of those necessaries. On the other hand, vitamin-c might be important for regeneration rather than... (more)

I agree with the "don't eat them" part if you simply don't like them. However, I've found that eggs slathered in coconut oil, butter or ghee and with seasoning of your choice on them are fantastic. Especially if you find a good source with a... (more)

Use more fat. Most people who switch from teflon to cast iron expect proteins to just slide off the surface with a whisper of veggie oil spray. Try putting a couple tablespoons of butter or coconut oil in the pan before the eggs hit. You'll be... (more)

Duck eggs are more easily digestible than chicken eggs and haven't been through the history of genetic modification like most all chickens. I say go for it if you have access to duck eggs.

With pastured chickens they occasionally slip one by the goalie, they will kick it back into a corner of the nest and it will sit unnoticed and uncollected, then it will get pushed forward and collected as new. I hate when that happens,,,

I find hard-boiled eggs to be more filling than scrambled, poached, fried, etc. Is there a scientific reasoning behind this?

indeed, if there are, let's say, 10 hard boiled eggs, they seem like a big meal, on the other hand a 10-egg omelet - sort of snack

This is called thermogenesis, and it's awesome. If you eat enough protein and your body functions properly, instead of converting it to fat and storing it, you burn it off and generate tons of heat.
