Very awesome man. Can't you just give the eggs to your neighbors for a few days since you're sick of them?

You can't be serious.

Now I'm just too curious not to try this out.

To have access to fresh eggs from chickens who roam around eating grass/leaves and insects is a wonderful gift.

Give those things away! Just a half dozen at a time, though, because you want to spread the gospel of what a proper egg should taste like as far and wide as possible.

There are actually people out there who love commercial eggs and can't get enough of it while refusing to acknowledge the fact that those chickens are in torturous conditions and injected with antibiotics, hormones, and fed GMO corn/grains.

Oh no, not GMO grain!

I've eaten 4 eggs daily for the last few years and am fit as a fiddle.

the rest of the shit, fair enough, but what the hell is wrong with genetically modified grain/corn?

I don't want to turn this into a debate, but I don't think it's too far beyond the pale to claim that GM corn engineered to be insect-resistant could possibly be toxic to humans. These GMOs are engineered to express certain types of protein toxins originally from bacteria (e.g. Cry3Bb1 in MON 863's case) - I mean, you're basically consuming corn with pesticide in it, and there's been so little research carried out on them that nobody knows fuck all as to whether they're actually toxic or not. Check out this study, though it was done on rats (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20011136):

Our analysis clearly reveals for the 3 GMOs new side effects linked with GM maize consumption, which were sex- and often dose-dependent. Effects were mostly associated with the kidney and liver, the dietary detoxifying organs, although different between the 3 GMOs. Other effects were also noticed in the heart, adrenal glands, spleen and haematopoietic system. We conclude that these data highlight signs of hepatorenal toxicity, possibly due to the new pesticides specific to each GM corn. In addition, unintended direct or indirect metabolic consequences of the genetic modification cannot be excluded.

Thanks for pointing that out. GM crops are better to eat that crops ridden with insecticides.

I've eaten 3 eggs every morning for the past couple years. You'll get sick of them before you die from them.

I'm getting a "Page not found" message, so I can't comment directly on your link, but it is talking about "Bt crops", yes? Bt has been used for decades and is pretty widely considered safe for any organism to consume, beyond a couple groups of insects. Of course, that old chestnut "more research is needed" always pops up in scientific research.

Might be hard to tell since I took this photo with an iphone in the bright sun, but two of these eggs are blue...had em this morning, after a break I am into eggs again!
