perm any 6 from 12

Generally nice eggs - flavour is okay, usually adequate use by date. Sadly the pickets seem to forget that the box contains eggs! This week the top of the box was obviously flattened and damp despite being the only thing in the bag - looks like this bag went in the transit crate at the bottom and everything else landed on top. Result? 6 of my 12 eggs crushed and the others sticky but salvageable. Refund requested (not for the first time).

The yolks of these eggs are of very variable quality. Some are very pale and they often break when you try to separate the eggs. And they are not as large as one might hope. But they are free range and taste OK.
