I see that in some places you can either purchase eggs that are white or brown. What is the difference between the two. Is one better than the other. Is any one more nutritional than the other. Do they taste different? I have always bought only white eggs. What do you buy?

As far as I know both have same nutritional value. Although, in winters, when brown eggs are available, I buy brown eggs, which have better taste than white eggs.

That's exactly what I needed to know. Thanks for the reply. If they cost the same I'll try getting brown eggs the next time.

@pitstop In Delhi, the cost of a brown egg is Rs.10/- per piece while the white eggs are selling @ Rs.7/- per piece.

I think the white eggs are the commercial kind that are produce by artificial means through feeds that induce the chicken to produce eggs. The colored ones are from free range breeding and the hen is inseminated the natural way. What we jokingly refer to as "fun eggs". The chickens had fun making them.

Where I live brown eggs are said to be "stronger" than the white ones.

Maybe they contain more protein and make you more muscular.

@pitstop exactly. They are not even recommended for small children

I don't like brown eggs. It tastes fishy. The family prefers to have white eggs in the house.

@pitstop For some local people in the provinces, they do prefer the brown eggs and even freshly harvested in the chicken farm.
