Good technique, but how many "farmers" at the market are going to go through the trouble. More often, it's about the buck. Markets have a FAST turn around and product has to be moved quickly. And a bad one is gross. But, the USDA isn't involved in that. Markets are great, but they sure as **** ain't the holy grail.

All true enough. Nevertheless, around here, if you want to survive in the farmer's market circuit you have got to supply a good product. YMMV.

Most of the eggs these people are turning out are not fertile! Enjoy them!

OMG. Are you guys trying to put me off eggs forever?!?!

I've heard of the Phillipino delicacy with the egg fetus. OMG. I couldn't... wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole. Something about a half developed fetus with beaks staring at you..... ugh.
