    Cooking them makes them more bio-available.

    My understanding is that cooking makes the protein more bioavailable, but reduces the nutrition of the yolk. Yolk raw and whites cooked is probably optimal, but we are really just talking minutia here. Not a big deal.

    I eat 2-3 eggs per day and if I make an omelette or boil the eggs I like to leave the yolks raw. For me it's a matter of taste; They are absolutely delicious! Salmonella etc. don't worry me, because I have reasonable faith in food safety when it comes to my country of residence. I've been eating raw eggs since I was a kid (until the age of 12 mainly in cookie dough) and have never had issues. From the last 20+ years I only remember one minor poultry related, news worthy salmonella scare.

    Ditto on the raw yolk thing. I hate hate hate cooked egg yolk unless it's for making egg salad or deviled eggs. I've been eating over-easy eggs (cooked white, runny yolk) since I could eat solid food! Never ever got salmonella or food poising from them. I, too, have eaten plenty of raw cookie dough and cake batter in my pre-Primal days, without any adverse affects.

    My grandfather used to eat a raw egg with his breakfast every morning... more or less. He'd have a "minute egg" - my grandmother would set a pot of water on the stove, turn it off when it boiled, drop an egg in, and leave it in the steamy-hot (not boiling) water for a minute or two, max. Then my grandpa would eat it. It was basically a 95% raw, warm egg. I found it gross, but he never had any ailments from doing this!

    I don't eat many eggs. Maybe 3 a week? Recently I bought some goose eggs. Now THAT's a yolk! I don't know if I can ever go back to chicken eggs.

    Anywhere from none to 2 dozen, depending on what I want that week. Usually fried in bacon grease and butter, but occasionally I'll make fauxritos or portomelettes.

    Depends on the week.
    Sometimes I can get through 20 a week, sometimes 8-10. If I've got a freezer-cleaning op going on (my freezer is almost 100% meat with some frozen berries), then I usually don't buy eggs, as meat is readily available.
    Probably average at 10.

    I think it is a mental thing for me. Even eating soft fried eggs, I might only leave one soft, as I feel like I am "eating" more, getting more food on my plate if the yolk is solid. Weird, I know.

    3 or 4 a day, on days when I don't get my eggs I don't feel right. I love them so much I got my own hens. I need more hens. I call them sunset eggs, not sunny side up, because of the deep orange yolks. With salt and cayenne.

    I get crazy sometimes about them and eat as much as 50/week. Then I lay off eat several a week afterward when I get tired of them.
