GRANA  here;
 As achild,my  older relatives always bought white egg claiming they were  better quality( fresher,more
nutritious)When $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ got tight my Mother switched to brown eggs ( cheaper) I thought  tey tasted BETTER.MyGreat grand parents had a produce &  egg [ truck]farm ( w/ Rhode Island red chickens, they sold brown eggs & it was  the egg of choice for me( we got them free or close to & helped to support the family business.
 I J justfound an artcle  that  talks about both types of eggs& clears up the AGE OLD QUESTION  of which  is better???????????????????
WHITE EGGS vs. BROWN EGGS?  We've all noticed the difference in price at the grocery store as we stand scratching our heads, but have you ever stopped to wonder what the difference really is between white and brown eggs? Most of us inevitably choose whichever eggs are on sale, or we just buy the color egg we've always bought. Well, it turns out there actually is a difference between white and brown eggs.It's all about the chicken
The answer is so simple that you may be surprised. White-feathered chickens with white ear lobes lay white eggs and red-feathered ones with red ear lobes lay brown eggs (this may not apply to all breeds). And besides that, there are certain chickens that even lay speckled eggs and blue eggs. But when you get down to the egg, nutritionally there is no difference -- it's all just in the looks.

Around here brown eggs are always more expensive.  I have no idea why.  But I always grab a carton of white and don't worry.

My niece raises chickens and she said the color has to do with the type of chicken just like Ann had mentioned.Her chickens lay brown eggs.They are more expensive due to the size of the eggs,they are larger which means the chickens need more feed, more feed = more expensive eggs.My husband says he can't eat her eggs because he can't get it out of his head where the eggs come from lol lol lol .I asked him where do you think the eggs come from when I buy them,his answer I don't think about those. lol lol lol

Having grown up on an Iowa farm and being responsible for gathering the eggs, I knew the answer to the question, white vs brown! And no matter what color the chicken, they all like to peck your hand when you reach for the egg. lol

Verlee,  I hated to gather eggs too.  There were 4 of us girls and we always were fighting about
who's turn it was to gather the eggs.  There was never a time that you didn't get pecked. We always
called them broody old hens.  lol lol

I have usually used white eggs.  Nutritionally there is no difference.

it is only the color of the chicken that determines the color of the eggs.  I get whatever is on sale, unless I get them from friends who raise chickens.  The price is always the same and the eggs are really fresh

When I was a kid we raised chickens --- LOTS of them.  We ate many eggs and many chickens.  Ugghhhh - butchering those things was really awful.  Mom did that - cut off their heads and dunked the body into boiling water to loosen the feathers.  Then we kids had to do the plucking.
Oh, that was awful.

I buy either - I have never noticed any difference - brown eggs tend to be a little bit higher in price, but otherwise no difference.

If I am buying, they are white.  If someone gives them to me, I'll take the brown.  No difference in the egg itself, the difference is in the price.  Wonder why that is?

They are just the same, the only difference is the color of the shell.  Buy whichever is the best bargain!!

I just got some duck eggs from my neighbor.  They are white or very light colored, just not the really white of purchased chicken eggs.  I'll color some for Easter.  A quick way of coloring eggs I learned from my grandfather is to boil them with some onion skins.  They come out a really pretty russet color and you get color and cooking all at the same time.

Yes Verlee -- that was so awful I'll never forget.
Isn't it weird to pluck those horrible, smelly things then gobble them for SUPPER.......... Dinner was at noon.  Supper was the evening meal.
