Us and Them

Store-bought- and Bluestem Farm winter eggs
Even in the heart of winter when chicken foraging is at a minimum, our eggs  (right) beat the pants off of store eggs (left).  We gave the rest of these away when our girls finished their molt and started laying again. 

7 times more beta carotene
3 times more vitamin E
2 times more omega 3
2/3 more vitamin A

1/3 less cholesterol
1/4 less saturated fat
