I wouldn't eat that hon. Pink in egg white can be blood (which would be safe, but not particularly appetising) but usually is an indicator of spoilage.

Oh I definitely didn't eat it. It was the only one in the dozen that has had any issues. And still well within its "best before" date too. Was just curious as I'd never seen anything like it before.

Try the CluckAR ap from choice. It shows you which eggs are truly free range. You open the ap and point it at the top of the carton and it scans it and shows you how many chickens per square. It's very clever.
I normally buy my eggs from some happy chickens around the corner. They just stick a sign out when they have extra eggs

What is the recommendation? Was just in Coles and looking at some of the cartons they now have advertised 1500 chooks per hectare. That seems to be the definition of free range.

some of the Coles and Woolies 'free range ' eggs have 10,000 birds per hectare! If I buy I get the ones that are 1,500...the Good Farmer is one of them and there's another one in a white box that Coles sell

I only buy certified organic eggs ( and chickens) as not only are the chickens happier they can't give them antibiotics or chemical laden feed which I think has a lot to do with the quality these days

When I started using the CluckAr app I was shocked by how many of the 'free range' failed.

We only use eggs from our own chooks. We have 3 and they have about 1/4 of our 1000m sq block fenced off for them. So I don't know that is in terms of free range.
We sometimes get spots in the eggs or whatever. Not often. But I eat it anyway.
