I really enjoy shopping at local Farmers’ Markets especially since I moved to New Mexico.
While browsing around one Saturday morning I noticed a farmer had a bunch of small colorful eggs as well as large eggs with polka dots. I inquired about them because they looked interesting and I wanted to know more.
The farmer told me that the small eggs are known as pullet eggs and are from young chickens just starting to lay. The large eggs with brown speckles were from local wild turkeys.
I couldn’t walk away after learning that information. I had to buy them. I purchased six pullet eggs and six turkey eggs for $4. What a bargain for eggs coming from free range and drug free poultry.
I offered to cook a turkey egg for my mom but she declined. If I ate eggs I would have at least tried it but my vegan diet does not allow me the opportunity to do so.
However, I do use vegan and vegetarian haircare products, and egg shampoos are a perfect vegetarian protein source for the hair that I highly recommend. Check out one of my older posts on using eggs as a shampoo by clicking HERE.
First, I shampooed my hair. Afterwards, I shampooed again using the eggs.
Pullet eggs. They are really small. I like the blue one.
The blue pullet egg.
This is the turkey egg. The yolk looks just like a Chicken egg to me.
Side by side. Look at the difference.
Both eggs mixed together.
The eggs in my hair. It lathered rather nicely. After rinsing, my hair was literally squeaking clean. Seriously. I am not kidding!
