    it is probably a nutrition issue i would try and give them some more plants and vegetables. as long as the shell on the eggs are not to thin there probably OK

    Greetings from Kansas, Brimo, and [​IMG]! Pleased you joined our community! I agree with pallas - usually a little greenery brightens up the yolks. Best wishes and thanks for joining BYC!!

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    Yes, yolk color is very nutritionally based. It doesn't necessarily always mean POOR nutrition, but usually results from lack of variety. Try offering the birds some green foods. Certain yellow substances, e.g. corn or marigold extract, can also pass that color onto the yolks.
