You are in the supermarket and you debate between which eggs to buy. There are brown eggs and white eggs, but are they different?

It turns out that brown and white eggs aren’t that different, apart from the price.

If you’ve ever debated between the two varieties, you can take comfort in knowing that the choice is more aesthetic than anything else. Both brown and white eggs have similar shell thickness, nutrition, and flavor. So what is it that makes them different?

Surprise! It is the hen that separates the white and brown eggs.

White feathered chickens with white earlobes usually produce white eggs. Chicks with reddish-brown feathers and red earlobes create the brown eggs.

As for the price difference between eggs, that also comes down to chickens. Reddish-brown chickens are larger than their white counterparts. As a result, they require more feed. That costs more, and the cost is offset at the grocery store by said higher price.

Now, there is a caveat to all of this. If anyone has ever given him eggs from their own backyard, he may have noticed that they taste richer and are often brown. This is because the red varieties of chickens are more common for home coops and the feed may be different. It’s the food that causes that richer taste (but you won’t find it in the supermarket).

If you’ve ever bought brown eggs because you thought they were better quality, stop! Save some money on groceries and go ahead and get those boring white eggs.
