Fresh Eggs

If you are interested in fresh eggs, consider having backyard chickens. First, you must check with your town or village to be sure that chickens are allowed, and then it is always a good idea to check with your neighbors as well. 

Of course, providing the neighbors with a few fresh eggs every week also can help get them on board.

Fresh eggs have more flavor and you are now in charge of what is fed to the chickens, thus ensuring the safety and nutrition of your eggs. Chickens who are outside in the sun produce eggs with higher Vitamin D. than store-bought eggs.
