HOW TO TELL IF YOUR EGGS CAME FROM A SICK CHICKEN (+ HOW TO FIND HEALTHY EGGS)

There’s nothing better than a delicious, perfectly cooked egg. Whether you like your eggs fried, scrambled, poached, or boiled, a better egg always makes a better breakfast.

 Are the eggs you’re eating from healthy chickens, or have you been unknowingly eating unhealthy eggs your whole life?

HOW TO RECOGNIZE A HEALTHY CHICKEN? 

So how can we say whether a chicken is healthy or not? A chicken which is in good health eat different sorts of foods every day. This includes meat because that’s the food they also need. They might want to eat different bugs, mice and even snakes.

All the good nutrients from the food they have eaten are transmitted to their eggs. To gain these nutrients, the chicken needs to be allowed to move free, out on a fresh air. A chicken locked in a tiny hatch for its entire life simply will not have the same quality of eggs as free-range chickens.

How does a good quality egg look like? Here are some characteristics that may help you distinguish a good egg from a bad:

-Shell thickness and density: If you barely tap an egg and it cracks, keep on moving. The richer a chicken’s diet and the greater its overall health, the stronger the shells of its eggs. An egg should be fairly difficult to crack if it’s really healthy.

-Yolk color: For most people it is quite usual to see eggs with light or bright yellow yolks. However, this is not the perfect yolk color. The ideal color for the chicken yolks is deep orange. Next time you eat eggs check out the color of its yolk to make sure that you eat really good and healthy eggs.

-Yolk thickness: You should also look at the thickness of the egg yolk when determining the quality of an egg. Yolks from healthy chickens tend to be thicker and rounder. This means better taste and more nutrients.

WHERE CAN I FIND HEALTHY EGGS?

 Now when you know how a healthy chicken egg really looks like, you might be interested in the place where you can find them. Since there is a significant growth of the agricultural industry, you have plenty of choice for eggs.

If you have space for a few chickens, you may well be able to raise your own chickens and get more than enough eggs for your family. They can eat the scraps from your garden, keep your bug population down, and give you the most delicious eggs you’ve ever had.

You can also contact local farms and ask about their chicken raising habits. If they let their hens roam freely and don’t force them to follow a vegetarian diet, it may be worth giving their eggs a try.

You should definitely make an effort and try the eggs with orange yolk. We can guarantee that this effort will pay off as soon as you taste the difference!
