ok so I am getting Bright yellow yolks from my marans and my leghorn. My EE's lay a nice orange yolk but they aren't consistent in their laying .
they are all in the same coop. I feed them layer pellets, scratch, and table scraps (whatever the kids didn't eat) and whatever they find on the range.
they are spoiled to death

I heard that corn will darken the yolk but isn't it just supposed to be dark??

When my chickens eat greens all day, I get very orange yolks, but now that the greens are gone cuz fall is here, I get yellow yolks from the feed I give them.
