Why do some eggs have yellow yolks, while others are orange?


Why are "home grown" or "organic" eggs more likely to have orange yolks, while large grocery store ones are yellow? I've noticed this repeatedly, based on the type of eggs I buy. Is it to do with age? Diet? Other factors?

    Great answer! You'll get better nutirtion from the orange-yolked eggs of free range chickens!
