Happy Hens Lay Happy Eggs
In Partnership with The Happy Egg Co.
We talked to David from GA and here’s what he had to say:
David on the Colors of Heritage Breed Shells
Honestly, I thought, “How cool, a blue egg – I wonder if it tastes any different?” I have never before had a blue egg. I have had several brown versions of eggs, and some have had some speckling to them, but I always thought the speckles were just dirt or something. I would sometimes rinse the eggs off before cracking and other times just use them anyways.
What He Thought of the Rich Amber Yolk. . .
I was definitely surprised by the darker color of the yolk. It looks somehow heartier and more flavorful. It is much different than regular supermarket eggs, and it is even different than other free range eggs I’ve had in the past.
His Thoughts on Heritage Breed’s Distinct Flavor
When I first try a new type of egg, I prefer to scramble a couple with a little salt and pepper added. The vibrant color (almost an orange-tinted yellow) of the scrambled eggs had me excited to taste the flavor. It did not disappoint, either; it was very flavorful, so different from those regular supermarket eggs that need to be dressed up with cheese or ham or salsa or whatever just to be edible. These eggs are stand-alone scrumptious! I can’t wait to see how they taste fried and hard-boiled. Well done, Happy Egg, well done.
David on Happy Egg’s Commitment to Free-Range Farming. . .
My wife and are huge fans of eating chickens and eggs that are raised as freely as possible. There is no question that the taste is far superior to chickens that aren’t given room to roam and which have zero quality of life. I guess I’d say happier hens lay tastier eggs.
