Cast iron benefits especially from having greasy things cooked in it--fried chicken, bacon, etc. It adds to the seasoning. If you have a pan "dedicated" to cooking eggs, a non-stick would be the top candidate--and it still benefits from a skosh of oil/grease.

But getting back to eggs & cast iron - it just occurred to me that the only time I've ever used my cast-iron pan to cook eggs was for making "Dumplings & Eggs", using leftover Czech bread dumplings from another meal. The cast iron definitely gives the dumpling chunks a crispy exterior that really can't be accomplished in anything else.

I crack them in a bowl and add a little milk and water. I then scramble them in the bowl with a fork and put them on the pan right away, and I scramble them again when the eggs get a little warmer on the pan

You could have a profitable restaurant serving only scramble eggs: easy scramble, hard scramble, scrabble scramble, scrappie scramble, kiss n' scramble. The possibilities are endless. (porker pot scramble, vegably delicious).

Adding just a little water helps the eggs get smooth--all the white incorporated. But adding milk makes a watery scramble. My parents did that--and I, of course, thought that was what it should be.
The water is (for my experience) is how a good omelette is attained so it should be good for the scramble also!!

You can use either milk or water and not have watery eggs. Watery scrambled eggs usually are the result of over cooking. The heat causes the proteins to shrink, squeezing out the water trapped within.

I also have a cast iron skillet and love it (though I have never thought of using it to make eggs). It is especially great for fried chicken and for making corn bread. This skillet came from my grandmother to my mother and now to me. I plan to pass it to one of my kids eventually.
