I always thought they were brown. I guess that's how I've bought them!

So, now we have 12 chickens. Ok, I did not know that brown chickens lay brown eggs, and white chickens lay white ones. the ones with the purple feet lay purple ones...

just had to share. Apparently I knew nothing about chickens!

What color are your chickens? :) just curious, maybe it's just mine! the other funny thing is that the brown eggs have a richer colored yoke.

We compared all three, a white store egg, our white egg, and our brown egg... the white store egg was the palest, our chicke's white egg was a little more richer yellow in the middle, and the brown egg was the richest. I need to compare a store bought brown egg to one of our brown eggs. It's very interesting....

I think I've only seen an Emu egg in a zoo. That's pretty cool.

LOL! I always get a kick out of the whole "organic" thing. My husband worked at a diary processing plant and he said the only difference in the organic milk and regular milk was the organic milk went around the block an extra trip while they did the paper work to recieve it. Otherwise, it was the same as the "non organic" milk.

 the brown egg from the store still doesn't have that rich yolk like homegrown does.  we have had brown, red, grey, white, the araucana's were the funnest eggs as they come in pink, blue, tan, green, never had purple, all shades in between, and the only "chicken" that ever laid a white egg was our turken, she was so ugly she was cute!  and I don't know about you but I have found homegrown are harder to peel when making hard boiled eggs compared to store bought?
