Addie, I typed out all kinds of replies...but I didn't want to clutter the thread with lots of OT comments. See mods, I can be good sometimes.

CG, I have to remember to put the wink in mine. It was written with tongue in cheek. And you are a good girl

79 cents = 513.5 Rupees, so the price of 1 egg is 513.5 INR . In india the price of a egg is only 5 INR at average.

As a child in the 1950s I was always taught that duck eggs should always be well cooked - either in cakes or if fried, boiled, etc., cooked hard because if they weren't they would give you food poisoning. However, I've recently seen television chefs using them with soft yolks or in one case raw.
I actually have a little bell made from an egg Carton portion and a pipe cleaner that I made in kindergarten more than 50 years ago. It is my most cherished ornament. Never did it occur to me that there could be salmonella on it. I think I'll just keep on risking it.
Oh by the way. Duck eggs make the lightest cakes. Not sure if that is to do with the composition of the eggs or the fact that theyare generally bigger than chicken eggs but man I love having duck eggs for baking.

Love it, joesfolk. I have several of those, too.

Hens that are happy and well cared for in a clean coop, are most likely not to be a problem re: salmonella. My girls are, dare I suggest, very happy hens and I am confident that I can pass their eggs on to folks and not worry about anything--well, other than people get addicted to the eggs the girls lay--best eggs around!

There are about 300 million people in the United States. Let's say they eat twice a day on average; that's 600 million meals. There are about 42,000 cases of salmonella reported in the U.S. each year. So the chance of getting salmonella from an egg is 0.00007.

It's even less than that, because people don't eat eggs at every meal, but this is the limit of my statistics skills

Well you are better than me with math. My mind blanks whenever there are numbers involved. The Pirate and Spike can do mental math in seconds without a pencil and paper. Poo is right behind them. He loves Math. If he hadn't gone into medicine, he probably would be teaching advance math at MIT.

When cracking an egg, it is best to crack it on a flat surface (not the edge of a pan, cup, etc.). If cracked on the edge of something, there is a risk of bacteria getting in the cup, pan, etc.
