    We have our chicken run located under two huge pine trees which, of course, produce lots of pitch and lots of pine needles. Will this affect the taste of the eggs since they seem to eat both of these things? The chickens are Barred Rocks and Red Starts, they are 5 weeks old.

    My coops are surrounded by pine and spruce also. It does not effect the taste of eggs.
