    If you want more Orange yolks feed them some greens. I give mine banana leaves [​IMG]
     
  4. I feed mine mustard greens, rye grass and lots of veggie scraps. I'll see if I can take a pic tomorrow when. Make breakfast.

    Great post! I did not know that greens=darker yolks. Very helpful! [​IMG]
