    I am in love with the rich brown of the eggs in the Eggland's Best cartons, so I called them up and they told me they use all Rhode Island Red.

    I've had hatchery RIR (from MMM) in the past, but they didn't lay super well (not as well as my RSL), their eggs weren't this rich brown color (much deeper than my RSL) and they were kind of nasty and aggressive.

    Does anyone know where Eggland's Best buys theirs?
