Real eggs are the best.

My friend has chickens and keeps them in a chicken tractor. He uses the one with the wheels so he can move it around the yard. I am not kidding, look it up.

I saw them one time on a show. The owners never had to mow their lawn as the chickens took care of it very nicely with the constant scratching. Ingenious!

We have a local chicken farm about two miles away. A flat of 20 jumbo eggs is $2.
I can't tell the difference between the farm fresh and the grocery store eggs.

At $2 for20 I'd have to guess you mean a literal chicken farm, as in commercial operation. Yes? If so, those are probably eggs you get in the supermarkets, just haven't gone thru the middlemen yet. I think most of the people posting on this thread are talking about small personal farms that just provide more eggs than what the person keeping them needs, so they give away or sell the extras to help defer costs. I can pretty much guarantee those kinds of chickens get better feed and treatment than a commercial farm. I know my friend fed her babies/chickens a premium diet and they certainly weren't caged.

I find that the farm fresh have brighter color and higher yolks. And there is less water surrounding the whites. Makes for a more perfectly round egg when cooked.

This afternoon, I went to see the egg lady and buy another dozen eggs. She charges $4 a dozen! I think it's a bargain!
