The color of the egg..

The number one question I often get is about egg color.  Is a brown egg more nutritious than a white?  What are blue and green eggs?  If you are one of our customers you note that our eggs are of many varied shades, colors, and varieties.  Color of the shell is related to the breed of chicken.  We have many varieties of birds, because I prefer to see how each performs and...well I just like the variety!  All of our birds get the same non-gmo, non-soy feed.  All of our birds get to roam freely on our property each day.  If you get a white egg it is from a Leghorn, brown eggs are from any of eight breeds, and blue/green from our Araucana or Ameraucana hens.
