    In the new October issue of Foodnetwork magazine, There is a section in the back called "good question". Somebody asked if there was a difference in brown and white eggs. They replied (and I qoute)
    ....Generally, brown eggs come from red feathered breeds and white eggs come from pale breeds. Brown eggs do tend to be more expensive, however. Most red-feathered chickens grow to a larger size than white ones, so they require more feed and are more costly to raise.

    You think they would research this better???

    I have already sent them a message with a link to feathersite.com and some breeds to look at....

    I just saw this and want to send them a letter. For goodness sake, let's continue to spread mis-information.

    Someone better tell my red sex links to start growing again because they are all smaller than my Delaware and Light/Coro Sussex.

    While those are not all white, while they are at it I guess I will need to bleach those eggs so they can be white too (another myth I hear often).
