Color of eggs & Which color is the healthiest?

Discussion in 'Chicken Behaviors and Egglaying' started by ShelbyCoral, Mar 18, 2013.

  1. So I've been wondering, what color of eggs is the healthiest. I have really dark brown egg and I have really light pink eggs.
    My one Hen is loved very much and she lays white eggs, Though she is new to egg laying and she has only laid 4 eggs so far.

    There is no link between egg color and nutritional value. Produced under the same feeding regimen there is no difference between green, blue, white, olive, brown, tan, pink, beige ------- and the list goes on.
