Too fresh for my liking

One of the benefits of living in Italy is the fact that the food here is extremely fresh. That's one of the things I've loved most this semester -- having access to fresh, quality food that's very inexpensive (some of the cheeses I buy here cost me the equivalent of about $2.50, and I know that if I bought the same package at home it'd definitely cost at least $6, and probably more than that.)

Today, however, freshness was taken to a whole new level when I was making an omelette for lunch. I took my carton of eggs out of the refrigerator and took an egg out, and right smack underneath it in the carton, there lay...

...a feather.

I'm all for the utmost freshness when it comes to food, but really Italy...feathers are something that I'd rather NOT see right before I'm about to chow down on a couple of eggs.
