    New to chickens so if this question has been asked and answered before, pardon the repetition.

    Do different breed eggs for chickens taste different? Any input is appreciated:)

    There is no difference in the taste of an egg from one breed to the next. Sometimes certain plants can affect the taste of eggs though, like flax, chives, or garlic.

    As with most things on here, you will find there are an infinite number of differing opinions. I don't disagree with the above statement, but I've heard from others who do. I have not sampled eggs from every breed. I do believe that a chickens diet and the relative freshness of eggs collected daily from a backyard flock do improve taste over store bought eggs, which are stored refrigerated for much longer than many common people realize.
