    So, my first two eggs were perfect and delicious, but the yolks were a bit pale. I've had them on QuickGro feed and was about to transition them to Organic Lay pellets.

    They also get grazing time on the lawn and yard, and small treats of grapes. Should I also add black sunflower or flax seed, do you think?

    They should be fine. If they get treats and run around eating fresh goodies, don't worry about pale yolks.

    Mine got a bit paler when it began snowing here -- no more green goodies.
