Yes, you guessed it. There is actually more than one type of hen. Like all of us, we have different hair colours, so do hens and therefore the colour of the hen’s feathers usually dictates the colour of the egg they lay. The reason our Purely Organic eggs are brown is that they are a type of laying hen and naturally their eggs have a brown shell.
Maybe you’ve always wondered what hen lays white eggs? It’s pretty simple, most white eggs are laid by chickens with white feathers and white earlobes and similarly, most brown eggs are laid by chickens with reddish/brown feathers and earlobes.
So, ‘are brown eggs better than white eggs?’ you may ask. They’re not better, they’re just from a different breed. In fact, there are no nutritional differences between brown and white eggs, nor do they taste any different unless their feed has been enhanced for certain reasons.
Now you know the answers to the brown eggs vs white eggs debate!
