After reading an article here by Sabrina Traversa @sabtraversa about the various colors of eggs, this photo had to be shared. Someone we know has yard hens. These chickens produce various colors of eggs. This is due, of course, to the type of chicken each one is. There is no nutritional difference between a brown egg and white egg. Green eggs do not taste any different than a blue egg. Eggs are eggs, no matter the color. Kinda' like people. They come in different colors and sizes, but are still just humans.
Some discussions were made about white and brown eggs before, nevermind. Fact is that... I've never seen a white egg (IRL)! [em]w00t[/em] I saw a video about...

And like people, it is what is inside that makes a difference. I had a friend who raised and showed Araucanian Chickens, they had funny fluffy topknots and laid pink, blue and green eggs.

These are all so much fun to see. The person we know has 12 chickens and always a colorful pile of eggs for sale.

Some still don't like to think they are eating 'blue' or 'green' eggs.

I like the novelty of the colors (on the outside,at least). @PatZAnthony and @JudyEv, I see duck eggs for sale sometimes at our Farmers' market, but never tried them. Have either of you?

@JamesHxstatic Duck and geese eggs are just a bit stronger tasting. We had a pet emu which would lay a clutch of eggs each year. We would blow the eggs. We didn't particularly like the taste which was a bit strong but the eggs made great sponge-cake. One emu egg was equal to about 8 hen eggs so we'd make the sponge in a baking dish. Then split it and fill with jam and whipped cream. Pile more whipped cream on top. Oh, those were the days!

That is a good comparison between chickens, eggs and people! Different colors and sizes ... but still the same.

@PatZAnthony - I wish more people believed that everyone is the same, regardless of their color or size.

We often buy the varied color of eggs or sometimes she gives them to us, "she" being the woman who sells fresh ocean fish at the Farmers' Market here. I like them being free range and not caged and all those things. It always seems to me that a nice big brown egg tastes better than any others, despite science.

It really is true that humans taste what science can't prove.

Yes, you're right. No matter what colors do the eggs have, they're still eggs. And as what you said 'people come in different colors and sizes, but are still just humans'. I like that part.

It is just true, isn't it? Humans are the same, no matter what.

All the eggs are the same. I knew that from being at my grandparent farm. I like the way you said humans come in different size and colors. So true and we are all the same.

Thanks for the mention! Eggs are eggs, no matter the color. Kinda' like people. They come in different colors and sizes, but are still just humans. True, great quote.

You are so right. My grandmother had a big yard with plenty of hens and the eggs were of many different colors.

@patzanthony I missed Sabrina's article Thank you for explaining this and showing a picture. I don't know how I would feel about eating a green or blue egg. Never knew different kinds of chickens give different kinds of eggs. Thank you again for a great, educational article!

Yes, I buy eggs from a farm and they are all colors. It was a shock the first time.

i had an uncle that had different types of hens from all over the world. some from China laid green eggs. some others did lay brown eggs. he always swore they were the best for you the brown and frankly they did taste better to us. maybe the power of suggestion but we got those from him all the time.
