A simple (visual) guide to eggs - take 2

This week I finally had a chance to work in some more of the great feedback I got on the egg infographic from earlier this year. Thanks again to all those who provided encouragement and constructive feedback. I know there's always room for improvement, but here's my humble attempt at V2. Once again, the standards and regulations referred to in this infographic are U.S. specific. If you'd like to learn more about eggs, the original egg infographic post has more explanation, background information, resources, and some great suggestions in the comments.

This version was also made to be print friendly, and at the request of some readers, I've put the infographic up on Zazzle here for print/poster purchases. Note that the product link defaults to the largest (and thus most expensive) size - be sure to check the print options on the right sidebar. Proceeds will go to charity.

As many folks have pointed out, some of the best options for buying eggs are from local farmers who have sustainable and humane practices. Those can be hard to track down though as it's unlikely to find their eggs at your area supermarket, and the eggs may not fall clearly into the farming methods mentioned in the infographic, so any suggestions are welcome. The Cornucopia Institute also has a scorecard here that ranks many US farms (thanks to Marilyn B for the link).

I've got some more food-themed infographics in the works and once my schedule gets less crazy, I'll have them ready to share. In the meantime, if there's any topic you'd like to see covered please feel free to email me or comment with suggestions.
