I like to buy my eggs, chickens, and chicken feet (will explain later) at Descanso Valley Ranch stand at the Little Italy Farmers Market.
I recommend their eggs because it is important to have a good ratio of omega 3 and 6.  The modern diet contains too much omega 6 and the ration is really important for good health.

Avoid vegetarian feed eggs = ratio is messed up- chickens are supposed to eat bugs and grubs- make sure they don't eat corn
Avoid Omega 3 eggs = feed low grade flaxseed and the eggs will go bad faster

Keep the yokes runny when you cook them for the most nutrients.  Also, keep the yoke for a good balance of the essential fatty acids and to stay full longer.
