Perfect Eggs?

Curmudgeon | Oct 26, 200302:08 PM

For 15 years I raised my own chickens for eggs. I went through feeding them laying pellets [which I discovered included "hatchery by-products" (shells and cocks)] and ended with free range chickens which ate worms, slugs, bugs, seeds, and grass with a supplement of plain grains and cracked corn. The eggs were absolutely delicious--like European eggs. After coyotes removed the last batch of chickens (in parts) I started hunting for the perfect eggs. I've tried Horizon which aren't bad and every brand that they sell at the Berkeley Bowl among other places. For about 6 months I've been eating Humane Harvest eggs which are from vegetarian chickens. They are not the most expensive by a long shot, but they taste really good, particularly over easy. If anyone knows Humane Harvest and still thinks there is a better one (taste wise) I'd be interested in hearing about it. On the other subject indeed Kermit Lynch, Cafe Fanny, and Acme do comprise America's finest strip mall. It's just too bad the Cheese Board isn't there too.
