Why are some eggs WHITE and others BROWN?


Some chicken eggs are brown, others are white. Is it just a matter of color, or does the difference run more than shell deep? Does quality play a role? Or the color of the chicken? You asked, and we answered.


It turns out that brown eggs have a better reputation than white eggs, are more often associated with “naturalness” and sustainable livestock. But is that really so? No!

The color of the eggs does not indicate that it’s organic, nor whether the chicken was grown cage-free. Brown eggs are not necessarily healthier than white eggs, and vice versa.
