Finding chicken eggs is easy all year (though you’ll be impressed with spring and summer offerings of free-range hens). But some finicky fowl only lay their eggs in spring. Now’s the time to hit your farmers market or specialty grocery if you want to try duck, goose, pheasant, quail or turkey eggs.
