US - Bill Taylor, a former poultry farmer has found a large niche in pre-shelled eggs. Chances are, you&#39;ve eaten his yolks. Had a store-bought cake lately? Eaten a fast-food egg sandwich? Enjoyed breakfast at a state prison? Then you&#39;ve probably tried some of Bill Taylor&#39;s merchandise. For more than 30 years the former poultry farmer has been dealing in eggs, although there&#39;s not a chicken in sight on his Madbury farm. Taylor sells &quot;egg products,&quot; the industry term for what&#39;s inside the shell. Every day Taylor, his 15 employees and some high-tech machines wash and crack 360,000 eggs. The yolks and whites are funneled through a pasteurizing machine, then spewed into plastic bags and buckets for sale. It&#39;s how one-third of eggs in this country are sold, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. <i>Source:</I>
