Cage Free Chicken Eggs

I never understood the difference in regular store bought eggs versus cage free eggs. My dad has raised chickens for years and when they were producing a lot of eggs I would grab some from him whenever I was able to.

One time I had a few regular eggs left and used his cage free chicken's eggs and the regular ones at the same time.

The difference is amazing.

First, the yolk in cage free eggs is a dark yellow as opposed to the pale yellow if store bought eggs. Second, the cage free eggs are much richer tasting. And most importantly, cage free chickens are not given hormones so you don't get hormones from the eggs.

I think everybody has had those times where eggs have upset their stomach. Since my husband and I have been eating cage free eggs, we haven't had that problem and it didn't even occur to us until I had to buy regular store bought eggs because they were out of the cage free.

If you haven't tried cage free or fresh eggs, pick some up the next time you are at the store and let me know what you think.
