I've always believed that the colour of an egg yolk depends on what the chicken eats and that a mixed diet of insects and feed gives the darkest, most orange coloured yolks. I don't know what Freedom Farm chickens eat, but they produce gorgeous vibrant egg yolks which look like golden sunsets. The taste reflects this - much more flavour than those watery pale yellow yolks.

...and some egg trivia from when I took the kids on a school trip to a chicken farm:
- Brown eggs come from brown chickens and white eggs come from white chickens.
- Egg shells are soft and eggs are hot when they are first laid. The shell hardens as the eggs cools.

I'd love some free eggs as they are getting awfully expensive - especially if you want to do some baking. My supermarket sells some free range eggs for over $8 a carton and this is for only ten eggs whereas caged eggs sell for around $4.50 for a dozen. It's a huge cost difference which I think must put loads of people off buying free range even if they support the cause.

Please excuse the language but I've always loved this joke....
