Aren't they all the same? LOL!
Might be the wrong place to ask about this. Pretty much everyone on these forums is PROBABLY raising their own chickens because they found out the truth about store-bought eggs versus home-produced eggs.
So you'll probably get the same answer from all of us. "It's not the color, it's the way it's raised. Color means nothing except breed."
I understand that. I'm asking this just for a report/experiment.
Personally I like the green eggs because they are more fun and I get some interesting reactions when I give them away at a local food bank. They are harder to candle though. I can’t see inside some of them at all. But nutritionally they are the same based on egg shell color.
I did have fun at that food bank one time. An older gentleman said the green eggs were lower in cholesterol. I very politely disagreed with him but said I had a carton of eggs that were lower in cholesterol and opened a carton of brown pullet eggs. Not only were they lower in cholesterol, they were lower in fats, fiber, protein, and all nutrition. Since they were smaller than a regular egg, they were lower in everything.
If you want my opinion about which is better FOR ME, I'll say blue eggs. Not green or "easter egger" type, but actual blue eggs.
Why? Because they're easier to find when my birds are free-ranging! LOL!
Ok, I suppose I can dig back into way before I was educated on the matter and thought that the color of the shell made a difference, and I would have said brown were better. Back then I didn't know blue or green or any other color chicken eggs existed. I just want the colors in my flock because they look cool. All my eggs will be better than store bought!
I only have two breeds of chicken, and both breeds lay brown eggs. Since the only eggs my chickens lay are brown eggs, then I would have to say that brown eggs are my favorite. Having said that, if anyone offered me fresh, pastured eggs of any other color whatsoever, I would gladly accept them without hesitation.
What are you driving at, anyway? If you mean what color of eggs are better *nutritionally,* then it isn't a good question because shell color doesn't matter. It's what's inside that counts.
I am not hinting at anything. I am just getting information for a graph presentaition. I'm not stating anthing. I am JUST asking opinions. My belief is even more detailed then what had been said. Yes, I am WELL aware it's not the color of the shell. I teach children's agriculture classes.
