Home grown eggs and cholesterol

I have wondered for some time if home grown eggs (laid by chickens which eat bugs and are not fed commercial feeds) -- do you think they have as much cholesterol as other commercially grown eggs? I haven't done any research on the topic, and I am not sure it is something the FDA would share anyway... so what do you think?

I'm not sure about the cholesterol either, but eggs from free range chickens have omega 3 fatty acids, a better flavor, keep better and taste better. That's enough for me. I hope you find out about the cholesterol content.

I believe that the home grown eggs are having better protein contents and are stronger then the commerially grown eggs..i have been giving my kids these home grown eggs for quite a long time now and they dont fall sick or catch cold easily.. Dont really know about the cholesterol content of it..

I am not sure about the protein content but I just know that eggs are good for you and especially on a vegetarian diet they provide essential protiens... plus tons of other things!

I heard about benefits of eggs, the researchers told everybody can eat eggs 2 eggs per a day not fear about cholesterol.For me i believe because everybody in my family eat eggs 1-2 eggs per a day but nobody have excess cholesterol.

I think it has to do with what the chickens are fed, really! It also can have a lot to do with your chemical makeup too!
