    • it's "OFFICIAL" the PRO is taking it in the butt, again!


    • Good, I could eat more eggs. Eggs are one of cheapest form of protein. As a vegetarian, I rely on eggs as a main source of protein and it tastes great too. I hold this stock as a long term holding and don't care too much about daily egg prices.

        Yes. You cannot beat eggs as a near perfect balance of amino acids required by humans.

        Eat a bit of corn which has an amino acid missing from most vegetarian sources to come up with the perfect balance.

        The younger the chicken, the higher the quality egg. Younger chickens lay smaller eggs ... and those "double yolked" eggs.

        So if you want those eggs to stand up nice and perfect (not run all over your frying pan) OR stay in perfect shape in when you poach them, just use those "small" eggs instead of larger sizes.

        When you have guests you can impress them with the perfect eggs with that yolk standing up nice an pretty by using small eggs.

        Also, per ounce of egg, there is more protein and minerals in that small egg and less cholesterol.

        If you are making some type of baked dish, the whites of small eggs make much better frosting, much better angel food cake, much better pie topping because they have less water and whip up much stiffer... faster.

        One final tip for those who like to poach eggs straight into the water OR boil eggs and want them to peel easily: put a tablespoon of lemon juice in the water along with a pinch of salt.

        Take them out of the boiling water and immediately fill the pot with cold water.

        Those eggs will peel like a banana with your lemon juice and salt having kept the shell separated from the egg inside.

    • ...stay on for the ride fellas

    • Well if you know how the market works you would understand Retail sales of shell eggs are greatest during the fall and winter months and lowest during the summer months. Prices for shell eggs fluctuate in response to seasonal factors and a natural increase in shell egg production during the spring and early summer. Shell egg prices tend to increase with the start of the school year and are highest prior to holiday periods, particularly Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. Consequently, we generally experience lower sales and net income in our first and fourth fiscal quarters ending in August and May, respectively. As a result of these seasonal and quarterly fluctuations, comparisons of our sales and operating results between different quarters within a single fiscal year are not necessarily meaningful comparisons.

      So you got to keep in mind about the seasonal adjustments.

        Chickens lay more and more eggs as the days get longer. The supply of eggs will increase through July for that reason.
        This is particularly true for "natural egg producers".

        In the case of larger producers that do not claim "natural" the days are controlled through artificial lighting. The idea is to slowly increase day length to artifically mimic "spring time".


        I was an egg farmer in New England a while back.

        I also wrote a book on poultry with emphasis on small farm poultry raising, nutrition and egg production for profit. It is published in over 30 languages at last count.

        I don't really follow the contemporary market situation as much as many posters on this board do.

        I read some of the posts on this board once in a while just for the fun of it.

    • Why bother even looking at that, the chart shows a retest of the 17.01 low is in order. Pitiful action lately in CALM with the market roaring
