    This is GOOD.

    It's why we all raise Back Yard Chickens. orange , means healthy nutritious egg!

    Orange yolk bad?????? You're kidding,right? I've only had one customer complain about the orange yolk and that's the same one that complained about the eggs tasting "too eggy". She didn't mind them to cook with but did not like to eat them just as they were.

    Orange yolks can also be achieved through feeding certain foods that "dye" the yolk.

    But yes, the orange yolk is a trademark of a happy, well fed hen.
