Hello! I've recently (finally!) had some chickens start laying eggs! I have a question I haven't seen to find any information on. My chickens are laying pretty pale yolks (same as commercial store bought eggs). I know I know, yolk color doesn't mean more or less nutritious. But I so want those bright orange dark yolks! I give my chickens purina layena feed. I read that greens help darken yolk color so I've been giving them fresh spinach and kale (now that it's winter I like giving them fresh things to eat since all the grass is dormant). I also give them corn and meal worms now that it's cold for some extra fat and protein. They do free range everyday, even though there isn't much left to pick at. They have been laying about a month. My friends chickens have been laying since summer. When I got eggs when they first started they were regular pale yellow (like mine now). Haven't got any in a while and just got another batch from her and they're a gorgeous orange color. She only feeds laying feed and keeps them in coop. So I'm wondering...do the yolks darken as they get a little older and more experienced? This is my first time raising chickens so I'm hoping some more experienced people can share their experience with this. Thanks!
