    do yalls brown eggs, have brighter colored yolks, than your white eggs,

    or can ya not tell any difference?

    asking this because, there is a noticeable difference in mine, the brown eggs yolks are considerable brighter, than the white egg.

    by the way all of my chickens are free range, and have the same feed.

    My white eggs are just as golden as my brown.

    As far as the yolks and whites,,,,I see no difference in my eggs. However, the difference I see in mine is that the white eggs (shells) are chalkier feeling and thinner (breaks easier) then my brown eggs. [​IMG] Mine all free range and are on layers/ flock rasier.

    Henry did you know the chalky eggs won't hatch? A few of my guineas had chalky eggs, and they never hatch. They're missing something. Anyway, my eggs are all a dark yellow yolk. The white are banty eggs, but they are dark yellow too.

    hhhhmmmmmmmmm, well i have never noticed a difference in the past, but have been noticeing it lately, when cracking them in the skillet.

    maybe they'll darken up also,

    rite now my white egg layers are game hens, maybe they're forageing habits are different.

    Quote:No I didn't. I did hatch out some last spring/summer but I didn't notice the eggshell at the time. I just started noticing late this fall. They are LH, from 2008 spring hatch.
