Brown or white eggs?

With the huge egg recall, would you switch to local brown eggs from a farmer or pay the prices for the white corporate produced eggs now?

I buy the farmer ones anyways. No unnecessary hormones, antibiotics and usually cheaper.

ok call me silly or whatever but i have never known what the difference is between white and brown eggs. I know you can buy both at the store. But seriously an egg is an egg. Right????

There is no actual difference between brown and white eggs. There is a difference between, organic, local farm raised and commercial. Often local farm raised are brown.

No an egg is not the same as the next egg...It depends on the hens' diet, medical health, antibiotic usage, hormone usage and etc..

I always try to get local food I don't think I've ever had an issue with a recall.  I have my own chickens etc.  The color of the egg has nothing to do with it.  Believe it or not it's the color of the chicken's ear lobe that determines the color of the egg.

Brown eggs, from cageless chickens. It's really not much more than the plain white eggs and they taste better...the yolk is richer in color and taste.
