    I'd love being given eggs like that I'm with nephilim on this - egg is delicious, could eat it every day if I had no self control.

    I once got given a massive bag of potatoes by someone as a thank you (he also used to have a farm shop type thing).

    The best bit was the guy had parked next to me in the car park, and hauled the sack all the way across site, up three floors to my office, only for me to return it back to my car boot!

    Our neighbours keep chickens and they sometimes give us fresh eggs - they're fantastic, much tastier than the ones you get in shops!

    Not a fan of eggs, one of three foods that make me feel bloated and fill me up instantly.

    Eggs, Sausages and Mash Potato. Even two spoon full and I feel full

    Fantastic, proper "home grown" free range eggs are so much better than anything from the supermarket. So much more colour and flavour. My aunt and uncle have some chickens and it's always nice to get eggs from them.

    Lightly scrambled for my please, with single cream instead of milk and a slice of white toast, golden and buttered

    Damn, I'm hungry now and it's not even close to lunch.

    Indeed, they are so much nicer. Used to have chickens when I was a lad, and the eggs were soo much nicer.

    Bit of advice though

    Break them into a cup before putting in food just to make sure they are ok, sometimes they are a little manky, not every hen lays a perfect egg!!

    I'd love a gift like that, better than a bar of chocolate which is the (rare) norm..

    Freshly laid eggs are a bit of a nightmare to peel after boiling though!! they usually just fall apart!!
