what's happened?

Usually really reliable, the last 2/3 boxes have been watery and flavourless. Threw many away.

Rating: 2 star out of 5

red yolks?

I thought these were free range? For some reason these all had really red yolks, and didn't taste of anything. The hens must have been fed something to make the yolks go that red?

Rating: 5 star out of 5

Good free range eggs

I tend to use these eggs as a staple. They're usually a good size and always stay fresh right up to their best before date. I find they are nicely flavoured and very rarely anaemic looking, unlike others that I've tried.

Rating: 3 star out of 5

Average eggs

Just average. No problems/complaints with them, not had any bad ones, but not particularly outstanding either and no real flavour as with most supermarket eggs. They're fine. They're not going to change your life.
