    Apparently us English dont like white eggs and prefer brown ones, although i dont really care what colour my eggs are, as long as they taste good.

    Americans are apparently the opposite and prefer white ones.

    I really cant see a difference apart from the colour. What do you prefer?

    Brown...just because that is what I grew up eating. Brown eggs from my grandmother's house, she raised chickens.

    I prefer brown eggs, but it has nothing to with the way they taste. Just something about brown eggs that make me feel like a farmer & bring back childhood memories!

    I just found out one of my friends will not eat a brown egg. She thinks they taste horrible! I have been giving her eggs for a couple of years and she just now told me!

    I prefer brown eggs now that I am raising them! This is not true for my DH. He will eat the brown eggs but would rather have the white "store bought" ones. When I first started getting brown eggs from my girls, I noticed one day that there was a dozen store bought eggs in the fridge. I asked DH "what are these for?" He said, "There for me, I don't like the eggs that come from chickens." I laughed and asked "Where do you think these come from? His reply - "Sam's". LOL He has since gotten used to the home grown eggs but still doesn't LOVE them like the kids and I do!

    So in the shops in the US do they sell alot of white eggs. I never thought anything of it at the time but its really rare to find white eggs in shops here, it kind of makes sense now why.

    Too funny!
    I have a buff orpington who lays a rose colored egg, but it is only on the outside, the inside it still white.
