    The article seems relatively accurate. They did state that the information might not apply to all breeds. For their purpose, the eggs they tested will nutritionally be the same, be it white or brown eggs.

    Of course, they're not going to go into the nutritional details about eggs being healthier from chickens that are allowed to free range on grass and eat bugs and the like.

    I think it is just a matter of preference. We know there is no difference nutritionally. Here in UK brown eggs are much preferred to white ones and it seems all commercial breeders supply brown eggs. I often smile when I see Ina Garten using white eggs in her recipes, we would not see that on TV here.
