Retire those eggs.

They are old.

So say the good folks at http://www.chickenkeepingsecrets.com/.

The average grocery store egg is 45 days old when you bring it home.

The average egg from a happy backyard chicken is four hours old when you bring it inside. I made that up. But it's fresh. And also, no animal was tortured to bring you an omelet.

  1. Can't agriscientists inject some sort of preservative into the eggs so that they last indefinitely? Like the stuff they put in Twinkies. Maybe Sen. Harkin can send some money for research. /kidding :)
