For her birthday I built my daughter a lil coop and bought her a couple chickens to care for. They're cool lil animals for the backyard, and fairly low maintenance. But, now, they're producing eggs and its gnarling me out.

Yes, I know they're fresher and all that, but it just seems creepy.

Knowing where your food comes from usually isn't pretty. Seeing what is making your eggs and seeing where they're coming from probably isn't appetizing. Fancy, hermetically sealed bags with the final product is a lot easier to digest. Pun intended.

Oh, I love to cook, always have. It's my escape. Cook breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday...and every holiday for my family.

But, hate eating eggs for eggs sake.

I hate that extra little white bugger floating about inside the eggs. I can't help but think that thing was going to grow a beak and feathers...


I'm not a farmer or chicken expert, so I have no idea what that little snot is doing in there.


This is one reason why I stopped eating them.

I hate fresh eggs. Half the time when I need to use eggs, it's to make deviled eggs or egg salad. Fresh eggs are significantly harder to peel than older eggs.

You could go egg RockHawk's house, Pe.

Farm fresh eggs are the best. Everything else is flavorless to me.

My wife's family raises their own chicken and cattle, so we always get the good stuff for free. Check out this pic of an egg one of the chickens laid last year - the smaller one is about a normal sized egg. The other... well we're pretty sure the chicken was traumatized after that delivery.

TriCHawk - ever try making 50 or so deviled eggs with fresh eggs, though? It takes literally like twice as long compared to store-bought eggs that have been in your fridge for a couple of weeks.

Eggs seem like a commercial product, like Tang or Spam, until the day you see one fall out a chicken.

I've never been able to get down with the brown eggs. They don't feel clinical enough. When I was a kid, we had some Banty chickens that would lay these small greenish eggs. Those felt wrong too, like the Audobon Society was going to arrest me for aborting baby Robins.

Quail eggs are delicious.

There's a membrane that keeps the shell attached to the yolk after its boiled that needs time to release. try cooking them a few days ahead of time

Fresh eggs rule. We had 5 chickens that all died over the past year at the claws of some crafty, unseen, urban mammal. Raccoon or possum, I assume. Shame.

Haven't tried that, but I heard that older eggs have that sort of separated (or that it becomes looser, or something) as compared to fresh eggs; all I know is older eggs own the crap out of fresher eggs when it comes to peeling them. I'll have to get some fresh eggs to try your suggestion with, it'd sure make life easier because EVERYONE loves my deviled eggs, and I feel obliged to make them for anything I need to bring food to because of it. Thanks for the tip.

After boiling, I put them in ice-water for a minute. Easier to peel.

Probably not as creepy as the chickens feel with you watching them all the time.

DTex, that does help some, (rapid cool-down) but there's still a considerable difference between old eggs and fresh ones no matter what I try. There are a ton of "tips" on the internet to make boiled eggs easier to peel, and not a single one makes more than a small (possibly small-to-middling) difference that I've tried. Except to use old eggs.

Yep, that's the number one tip. They way purchase those eggs a couple of weeks early and keep them in the fridge. Wife has a peeler that hooks on the faucet that is a bit better but no really fresh egg peels easily.

In our early years of Easter and young kids eggs from the store weren't so fresh. Now a days eggs at the store are at the oldest a week, more likely 3-4 days. There are places around here, Moses Lake, and many others I'm sure that have trucks rolling for either seperate grocery stores or distribution centers daily.

I met a guy years ago at Sea-Tac in the middle of the night. I was waiting for a connecting flight from Vegas to Spokane and he got off a plane from London, stepped up to the clerk with a gold visa card, (very unusual in those days) and asked if he could get on the same flight.

Turned out he was from Northwest Egg in Deer Park and had been in Saudi Arabia that morning where they had sent a shipload of eggs. Had been in the air all day and wanted to get home that night. Told me eggs sealed with mineral oil and refridgerated would last 6 months pretty easy when I questioned how they got eggs that far.

That was about 20 years ago. Northwest Egg has become Northwest Food and they have moved out by Lind, Wa. The property of theirs and a mink farm right by the old Deer Park Drag Strip just recently sold for development.

6 months? Damn, lol. It's weird that they last so long. I usually throw out any leftovers after two months, but rarely do eggs last that long in my fridge.

The ones we get in the stores aren't sealed with mineral oil. Only those for long term shipment.

When we make eggs we use the start with cold water, bring to a rolling boil. Turn off the burner but leave the pan on the hot burner covered for 20 minutes.

Then as Tex says run them under cold water. What I do is run cold water and then let them stand about 5-10 minutes, pour that water off and run cold water again. That helps a bit with the peeling but again the fresher the eggs the harder to peel. Which is a pisser if you're making one of my favorites deviled eggs.

If you are wigged out now, wait until you find some with blood on them. Blecch! Filthy animals.

Can't get out of your mind that you are eating something that came out of a torn, bloody, chicken sphincter

Yeah, just cooked one for my daughter, it's bright orange/yellow. Stains the bowl and pan I cook it in. Creepy lil thing.

Plus, the lil white membrane, the "soul", was the size of a quarter.

She's sitting to my right, eating around the glowing-yellow scrambled pile of eggs. She's weary of them, and I dont blame her.

In SE Asia they sell eggs every day and they don't even refrigerate them and they are fine.

BTW, that white spot in the egg, is the roosters sperm.
