WHO SAYS
EGGS SHOULD BE WHITE?

In fact, there are as many egg colors
as there are chickens . . .
at least on the outside!
(The insides of chicken eggs are essentially identical.)

Anyone who raises chickens will tell you --
eggs come in a kaleidoscope of colors:
white, brown, green, pink, blue & yellow.

Chickens who eat "free range" have a varied diet,
including minerals which affect the color of their shells.
One breed of chicken -- the Americauna -- is called
the "Easter Egg chicken" due to its predictable
multicolored egg shells.

True "free range" farm-raised chicken eggs
have darker yolks and are much more flavorful.

Factory supermarket white eggs are so boring ! ! !
