Welcome to Pictures of Eggs!
This is a site about pictures of eggs. Yes, eggs. Not just any eggs, but cooked eggs. I built it because I couldn't find a single site on the Interwebs devoted to pictures of cooked eggs, and I thought that was a shame. Everyone should have a ready source to go to when they need pictures of eggs prepared in various creative ways.
I hope this site fills that void. Every page on this site has at least one picture of eggs. Some pages have multiples pictures of eggs, and some of the pictures include other items besides eggs like sausages and such. But the eggs are and always will be the stars of this site.
These pictures of eggs are for your enjoyment, so please feel free to download them and use them for any purpose you like, private or commercial. If you like, you can include a link back to this site to show your gratitude, but that's entirely up to you. As the creator and owner of this content, I hereby assign all of these egg pictures to the public domain, so anyone is free to use them.
Thank you for visiting! Please stop by again again soon.
