Egg Production Booms in Virginia

 RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia farmers produce enough eggs to make more than 1 billion deviled eggs annually.
 
     The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services said Wednesday that the state's farmers produce 696 million eggs a year. That's also enough to make 232 million three-egg omelets or 87 million pound cakes.
 
     Each laying bird produces 280 to 320 eggs a year.
 
     The department says cash receipts from eggs totaled $89 million in 2012. That makes eggs the 10th highest agricultural commodity in Virginia.
