    Hello,
    Was wondering if certain types of chicken eggs were better tasting and if there were ones that are better for you to eat? Also is there a big difference between white, brown and tinted eggs, etc. Have some chickens and was thinking of using their eggs to cook with. Thanks.

    If you're only thinking of using their eggs, what have you been doing with them to this point in time?

    There's no difference in taste between the different colored shells.

    Home grown eggs taste much better than store bought eggs. [​IMG]

    They are just pets, don't use them for meat. They are always laying lots off eggs but never ate any eggs. We've just always hatched them. Wasn't sure if certain egg layer breeds tasted better than others.

    They are all the same under the shell, and home grown taste better than store bought everytime.

    I know everyone say there is no difference. I have a variety of chickens.....my white and brown eggs are all the same. My green, EE eggs, however, are darker, thicker yolked, richer flavored, etc. Always have been, from the day they started laying. They all live together, eat the same, etc. [​IMG]
