My co-op is doing an order of these.  What makes these different from the regular unfertilized eggs? huh?

Uhhh - they're fertilized  rotfl

Just kidding.  I don't know that there is a big difference.  I'll see if I can find anything on it.

Yeah, that's what I said. rotflmao

Surely there must be some reason to feed these?  They don't seem to be cheaper than the regular kind. head scratch

No, they aren't typically cheaper.  They are more expensive than the unfertilized free range chicken eggs.  I would think there is some reason - I have some at home - when I go home, I'll see if there's anything on the carton.

Here's a link for you http://www.motherearthliving.com/issues/motherearthliving/feature/whole_foods/46-1.html

It's more about the differences of factory farmed eggs and true free range eggs, though.

OMG get otta my brain Mary!  I was wondering the same thing!

I bought fertilized egg by accident the other day, and the suckers are really deep in color.  The yolk is almost orange-ish.  and the flavor is stronger too. 

C&T had no issues eating it though.  I'll be interested in knowing too!

Darker yolks typically have higher nutritional value.  Fresh, free-range, organic eggs tend to have darker yolks than typical grocery store eggs.
