What is the difference between white and brown eggs? and which is better?
When I buy eggs by phone, they always ask me "white or brown?" and I just hit any. I don't know which is actually better.
The eggs are the same inside. Different breeds of chickens lay different color eggs.
This is no difference between white eggs and brown eggs other than their color. White eggs come from white hens and brown eggs come from brown hens. The gene that control the color of the feathers on the birds generally control the color of the eggs as well. For example, the Blue Jay has blue speckle eggs and his feather color is blue. It is all genetics. White chickens will not survive in the wild as long as brown chickens because they will not be well camouflage and their eggs will be easily spotted in the wild and eaten by other animals. This is all due to evolution where the fittest will survive.
Nutritionally speaking they are the same, and flavor for that matter. However, I read that the chickens that lay brown eggs eat more than the chickens that lay the same size and amount of white eggs. This is why the white are more common.
