    I have noticed that some of my egg yolks are not as bright as they use to be .. Is there a reason or does that just happen

    Quote:I was just reading on another thread (but of course I don't know if it is really true) that greens make the yolk darker. And someone else said corn does too.

    yea free range gets darker yolks thats why store bought are usually pale, unless they add something to the feed to make them yellow (like corn)
    what they eat changes the flavor and color of the yolk.
