“A radio man, Derry Brownfield said the chickens used to scratch in the stuff and eat the things. Oh, the good old days.”
I pay a premium for those eggs.
If the yolks are yellow I won’t eat them.
I need dark orange bordering on almost red.
That’s what a REAL eggs looks like. A farm egg where the chickens roam free and eat whatever they want, from grass seed, to bugs and slugs, to berries and the little grain you toss them.
Hmmm, we* have a few free range chickens and their egg yolks are slightly darker yellow than most commercial eggs, but certainly not orange bordering on almost red. OTOH, marigold flowers or their extract can be added to feed for continuously caged birds to “improve” yolk color.
*”We”. Haha - these are supposed to be mostly my daughter’s pets, and somewhat my wife’s too, but it seems like I end up doing half the work, my wife about 49%, and our daughter 1%! But... they are interesting critters to have around. They are not very smart, yet each has its own “personality”. They sometimes eat stuff that’ll raise one’s eyebrows a bit, though.
