Enjoy Fresh Eggs!

Do you like to eat eggs? Have you ever wondered if your eggs are fresh?

My neighbor keeps chickens and I feel most comfortable grabbing the fresh eggs right out of the chicken cube. It will be helpful to check the expiration date on your egg carton. If you are not sure, you can do the water test.

You may wonder why eggs go bad and I found out that there are almost 20,000 tiny pores in egg shells. If tiny bacteria have set into the egg, they release gasses as a waste product and therefore the egg floats. So if it floats it means that bacteria has set in and the egg is bad.

Enjoy your eggs fresh and in moderation!
