This is supposedly a St Georges day special - not sure what eggs have got to do with St George.

no idea if online though

better get reading some recipe books for eggs their eggperation date is 11th May

edit: For those whole don't really care about free range, morrisons are doing 18 (caged hens) eggs for £1.89

possibly some sort of egg war between the supermarkets?

and then they end up in the fridge for weeks until eaten.. And they still taste nice.. ;-)

The only difference I've seen in old/new egg is how easy it is to peal the shell after they have been boiled.

you can tell old from fresh , by ,... when u crack the egg open to fry it the white spreads really wide around the yolk when it is old , the fresher the egg the more compact the white , ,

everyone to there own , i would never buy eggs from a supermarket again , not knowing how long those eggs have been waiting to go on the shelves and how old those eggs actually are.

lol , you must never of tasted a fresh free range egg then , you can tell the difference from a shop egg and from your own back garden hens eggs, and believe me the difference aint what you have said above...

lol , mine have yet to have that on them , mine clean it off ready for me to collect

I'm always suspicious there will one day be a price fixing scandal over egg prices. At least were I live they are bizarrely more expensive in supermarkets then everywhere else. (cornwall)

My local village shops are 70p for six regular eggs rising to a pound for large free range eggs. One shop that does very large organic free range does get up to a pound twenty but thats unusual. People who sell eggs at their gates do them for around eighty pence a half dozen though a few places go to sixty pence and if you buy by the dozen you get a bit cheaper.

Supermarkets though are at least 50% more than even the local shops and sometimes twice as expensive. Yes occasionally asda does specials on a bit tray of eggs working out at 60p per half dozen but thats for the smallest crummiest eggs they could fine. It really is strange the price difference. They just don't seem to want to compete on price.

Oh put an egg in a bowl of water. If it lies on its side its fresh, if it stands on its end its mature and if it floats don't eat it. Fresh eggs taste nicest but do not make good whipped egg whites, you need an older egg to go fluffy.

We often get a tray of eggs from our sons girlfriends parents who run a free range egg farm. They are so much nicer than the ones we get from the supermarket, and we usually get some of the ones that don't fit in to the usual sizes - we once had a triple yolker! If you can get them locally from a farm shop, then it's definitely worth it, if you have to get them from a supermarket, as we often do, then this is a hot deal!

I agree, i'd never by anything other than free range, but....

but some people just don't care and i feel it's not for me to judge them

btw

you probably do eat cheap battery farmed eggs when you buy products with egg in it (cakes etc..) since businesses generally keep the costs down to a minimum

Can i ask how noisy your chooks are and do they cause any problems? i would love to have them in the back garden and me in the morning skipping out there singing " chick chick chick chik chicken lay a little egg for me" lol but am worried about the mess and other stuff associated with them and having 2 little boys around them. ( i am sure they are fine but people start giving false info saying they carry disease and all that .

Good deal! I always buy Free Range, but the fact of the matter is that 85% of the eggs sold in the UK are NOT from Free Range farms. People tend to go for price over the quality....

My chooks aren't noisy at all! All they do is cluck quietly - its the cockerels that cause all the noise!

The hens can be messy as they aren't toilet trained, as with pretty much any other pet! Also, they do smell if you don't clean them often, other than that, they are friendly creatures with seperate personalities! and the eggs are endless! :-D
They don't cause any problems with us. They don't carry diseases (unless you don't clean them or anything!)We have a 5 year old daughter, and all get on fine!
The chooks wait you for in the morning to let them out, and go to bed at dusk - which they can do themselves. All you gotta do is close the door!

I don't think it's just a case of people not caring; cost is a factor too.

If FR were the same price as battery, then I'm sure the majority of people would opt for the FR. But they're not, and people have budgets.....

We struggle but I'm (Mrs disagrees) prepared to pay the extra for FR. If we all did, then the cost would come down eventually; wouldn't it?
