Damn Right I Ate It
Okay, I'm used to fresh eggs by now, but this morning I cracked one that damn near made me jump out of my shoes. Check out the color of the yolk on the egg to the left in each photo. Both eggs are from the Araunca hens that live around Hendrick's Farm and Dairy. The hens are completely free range and get very little grain. The flavor of both eggs was terrific but the more deeply colored yolk was much denser (fattier) than the other. Actually, it was more like a duck egg than a chicken egg.
