The other day I saw Walgreens promoting "NICE EGGS $1.29" on its outdoor sign.

But I cannot remember ever buying eggs that were not nice.

Have you ever bought eggs that were not nice?

Actually I find that most supermarket eggs are "not nice" in that they are tasteless and watery-tasting..

When I was younger and had free-range chickens, sometimes we'd miscalculate and end up cracking open either rotten eggs, or fertilised ones that had little chicken fetuses in them. That was always distressing.

Nope, never...eggs tend to last well beyond any sell-by dates.

We raised chickens growing up, and with daily gathering, spoilage was never an issue.

How do you even know when an egg is bad?

Yes I DID!!

Years ago, I was making chocolate chip cookies.

I cracked an egg into the bowl, and out came a greenish-black blob!!!!

ewwwww...to this day I am sometimes scared when I crack open eggs based on that experience.

It taunts you from inside the refrigerator by hiding your condiments.

Now that's a not-nice egg.

I found a tiny fetus in an egg just yesterday! As for rotten eggs, nope.

I always have a separate bowl to drop the egg into just for this reason. Then when I see the egg is good it goes in the pan or recipe before I drop the next egg into the separate bowl.

now you know how I feel

Although, I have learned there are tests to see if an egg is good (I use the cold water one) - and this helps me cope with my traumatic memory 3 Ways to Tell if an Egg is Bad - wikiHow
