I am lucky to keep my own chickens, and they repay me by converting scraps of food and stale bread (their favourite) into yummy eggs. Totally free range and almost organic! Just now my daughter had prepared for me a boiled egg that was laid this morning. so fresh it was still warm when she collected it. She brought it straight to the kitchen and made boiled eggs immediately. It was quite the nicest egg I've ever eaten! Deep yellow, dippy yolk and firm, fresh white. Oh my! I rarely get to eat eggs on the day they are laid. Must do it more often.
