    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....

    They are true cause most brown egg layers are not white and most brown egg layers are bigger.

    Really.

    I wonder what reasoning supposedly causes blue eggs. Oxygen deprivation?

    Brown eggs are more expensive because it does take a bit more feed for those types of birds to have good pigment in the eggs. It's not a huge difference though.
