My friend gave me eggs from his chickens he raises in his backyard, what is the best way to enjoy eggs as fresh as these?

Nice! Would I be wasting them by using them in baked goods?

Yes - a waste for baked goods (except, perhaps a custard). Think of things where the egg flavor is accentuated.

Fresh eggs really shine in the simplest of preparations. Scrambled very slowly over low heat in butter with a tablespoon or two of cream - or an herb omelette. I remember the first time I tasted a fresh farm egg and marveled at the bright yellow yolk. Such a revelation after those tasteless watery factory eggs.
Save those fresh eggs for a luxurious breakfast.

For breakfast: soft boiled with buttered toast, a cup of freshly brewed coffee, outside on the porch in the morning sun. Preferable on a Sunday with some friends;-)
