Backyard Eggs are Better

Two of these things are not like the others....
I made a 4-egg omelette for lunch today.I used two backyard eggs,and two "commercial" eggs. The backyard eggs are thicker, creamier, have much darker yolks, and have thicker shells.They just look and feel healthier. Because they are.

Even though we only got 5 eggs today, our egg production is still improving. We're saving some up for paleo eggnog this Christmas, and we still have commercial eggs left- hence my two-sided omelette.

We have another two dozen chickens arriving at the end of January. Hopefully, by this time next year, we have more eggs than we know what to do with. And with those super-healthy yolks, that's a good problem to have.
