What makes the Healthy Dozens so superior you ask?
What is it? Kelp meal is dried seaweed ground into a meal form. Kelp meal helps prevent disease and promote improved health, such as providing a source of prebiotic fiber.
Feeding hens kelp meal may help them deal with heat stress and improve egg quality.
What is it? LinPRO-24 is a stable, all-natural Omega-3 feed ingredient. It’s a unique blend of flaxseed that is safe, has enhanced nutritional factors, and is easily digested and palatable to our hens. LinPRO-24 provides a significant level of Omega-3 fatty acids, which elevates levels of Omega-3 fatty acids in eggs. The overall result is a high quality and nutrient-dense feed ingredient designed to promote animal production and contribute towards their overall health.
What is it? ORO GLO® is a source of yellow pigmentation from marigolds. This feed ingredient gives our Healthy Dozen Eggs the rich, golden yolk color. Not only does this feeding ingredient give our eggs a beautiful yolk color, but it also increases the level of lutein. Lutein plays a significant role in eye health. Lutein may also reduce the risk for and progression of age-related macular degeneration. Our Healthy Dozen Eggs are an important source of Lutein.
Why Does it Matter?
Feeling a bit under the weather? Time to get up, get out, and soak up some Vitamin D! While we typically associate this essential nutrient with sunshine and supplements, you might be surprised to learn that EGGS are a powerhouse source, too.
Vitamin D isn't just great for strong bones and teeth - it's also a critical player in keeping our muscles, immune system, brain, and heart in tip-top shape. So, why wait? Grab those eggs and start feeling that Vitamin D magic!
What is Choline?
Listen up, folks! Choline might not be on your radar, but don't overlook this little gem hiding in your eggs! Choline is like a super nutrient that your brain and liver adore.
Plus, it's crucial for the delicate nervous system of growing babies. In fact, studies have shown that choline can give your brain a boost, helping with memory and learning. So go ahead and scramble up some brain food!
Happy Hens. Healthy You.
In addition to their nutritional benefits, the Healthy Dozen eggs come from our well-cared for and happy hens. Our feathered girls can freely roam with access to fresh air and sunlight. We believe that happy hens lay the best eggs, and we take pride in providing our customers with the highest quality eggs possible.
So, this Thanksgiving, not only can you enjoy a delicious and healthy meal with your loved ones, but you can also feel good about supporting humane and sustainable farming practices. Try our Healthy Dozen today and give thanks for the goodness they bring to your plate and to our planet.
It's possible to stand on a dozen eggs without breaking them. The principle behind this is distributing your weight evenly across the eggs' arched shapes to disperse the pressure.
Eggs Come in All Colors of the Rainbow
Egg yolks can vary in color, ranging from pale yellow to deep orange, depending on the diet of the chicken. Chickens that are fed a diet rich in yellow and orange pigments, such as marigold petals or corn, produce eggs with vibrant yolks.
You Wouldn't Believe It
The largest chicken egg ever recorded weighed a whopping 454 grams (16 ounces) and measured 31 centimeters (12.2 inches) in circumference. It was laid by a Black Minorca chicken in 1956.
