There is a difference. I don't think it's huge but I think they're better. A big deal to me is the conditions the industrial egg farms are run in. Not good for things that are alive in my opinions.

Store eggs are also not as fresh by the time you get them to the kitchen. Store eggs have been pasteurized typically. Home grown eggs really don't need to be unless you're keeping the chickens in unsanitary conditions.

Really fresh eggs have very strong yokes. In fact, really fresh eggs aren't any good for boiled eggs. The proteins aren't broken down enough so they are really hard to shell and often bust apart when your pealing them. Fresh eggs will keep in the icebox a month, no problem.

I'm building a new coop this spring. I'll post it when it's done.
