Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About Eggs
The simple truth can be found in God’s Word… As you look at the trees or anything else in nature. In creation, the trees had the seeds within themselves. The chicken came with the egg. And there you have it.
The chickens and eggs came together. They changed slowly over time into the species we know today. Technically, then, the egg came first because at some point an egg hatched into the exact variety of bird we know today.
Or, taken more generally, it was never asked "which came first, the chicken or the CHICKEN egg." Eggs as an invention far exceed the age of any creature currently living on Earth!
It was scientifically proven that the chicken came before the egg. The compounds and proteins needed to create a shell can only come from the chicken/bird
A red eared chicken can lay a blue or green egg. White ears=white eggs, red ears=colored eggs. They can be all the way from peachy pink to light blue, olive green and dark brown.
The large poultry houses have NEVER given hormones to any birds. Over 70 years of selective genetics, the birds have changed due to the consumers wishes. The consumer likes more white meat. The industry found males and females that by nature had larger breasts, they bred them together, and their offspring had larger breasts. Many hundreds of generations later the birds are much larger and have larger breasts. Laying hens are kept in a cleaner housing, and up off the ground so they don't walk in each others manure causing disease to spread, than any small home barn. Because they are low on the food chain, they are less stressed when kept close together. A stressed hen will retain a yolk up in their oviduct, when she relaxes the next day, the next yolk being released from the cluster will catch up with the on being held. They both move down, creating the double yolked egg. Since the profit on the "entire dozen" is between 2 and 3 cents, the producer will do everything to not stress the hens. Disease, loud noises, predators. So more often than not, the majority of the house will stress, they have to send those eggs to bakers. But don't make more for them when it takes two days production time. The white twisted tissue attached to the end of the yolk is the chaleaze and yes it hold the yolk steady inside the shell. Today we have "emotional consumers" due to the marketing. The leading poultry scientists agree, "the best egg to buy is the cheapest egg, they are all the same". Everything else you have heard is "perceived value". They have to make you believe their eggs are better. There are 6000 air pores on the shell of an egg. They will absorb odor and bacteria. Eggs are not refrigerated around the world, no refrigerators, The gather for each days use. Bacteria grows. In the stores, the eggs have a thin layer of glycerine to slow absorption. Until the eggs reach the store, no human has touched the eggs.
That's their belief system talking though, it's not actual facts, because they were not actually there to witness it.
It's everyone's right to believe whatever you need to, but to say only "you" know is just ridiculous and untrue (and just a bit arrogant). Who cares which came first anyway...they both taste good!
Our neighbor has chickens and I love her birds’ eggs..they are brown but vary in shades of brown. She feeds them organic foods and only made in the USA, not China or elsewhere. Shell color doesn’t matter...the egg itself is so flavorful. Grocery store eggs make my stomach hurt after (additives given to birds?). Eggs are a “perfect” food...give it some thought...the myth of cholesterol has been put to rest. Eggs are great for brain and body!
