Legbars also lay blue eggs. It seems that the old breeds are more likely to lay blue eggs. I think blue ones taste better – but that’s just me.

There are different uses for new and old eggs. Older eggs are best for meringue because they have less water content, making it easier to beat their whites to a foam. Also, older eggs are best if you plan to peel them after cooking because they release the shell best.
