What is the difference between brown and white chicken eggs?

Many people think that white eggs are factory-made, respectively, not as useful as brown eggs. In turn, brown for many are associated with a home product, natural, rich in various useful substances. But, if you look closely, you can often see the date of "production" on one and the other. That is, both types - "factory". But what is the difference then?

Does it depend on the chicken?

Yes! At the same time, the color of the egg shell depends on the color of the chicken color. White - lay the same white eggs, chicken with a dark color - brown. Color can not be a sign of fabrication, because in any case, the egg "produces" chicken. If you have relatives in the village, ask what kind of eggs their hens carry. By the way, some members of this family can lay eggs with a blue tint and spotted eggs.

So there is no difference in quality?

Absolutely none.The quality of the egg and its nutritional value depends only on what the chicken eats. If it is good to feed a brown chicken, it will carry a good brown egg. If you pamper more white "bird" - the eggs from it will be more delicious.

Does the color of the shell depend on the color?

No, the shell thickness does not depend on its color. Here the age of the chicken plays a big role. It is not difficult to notice that in young birds the egg shell is thicker, in the elderly it is thinner. This applies to white and brown, and eggs with specks.

Why are brown eggs more expensive?

As a rule, chickens with a dark color are more “dimensional”, respectively, they require more feed and can carry larger eggs. This may be the reason for the higher price of brown eggs. Although, if you look at the supermarket counters, you can see that both brown and white eggs come in different sizes: from very small to indecently large.

And how does it taste?

“The bigger the egg, the better and more useful” can also be considered a myth. In large eggs - the first category - 55–65 g (marker “1”) or 65-77 g (marker “O”) - more water and less nutrient concentration, they are carried by middle-aged chickens.The best choice is medium-sized eggs, eggs of the so-called second category - 55–45 g (marker “2”) and the third category - 35–45 g (marker “3”), they are carried by young chickens, they are nutritious and most tasty. One large chicken egg of any color contains on average 72-78 kcal.

Differences of eggs of different colors are not so much, they taste the same. Brown eggs, however, are said to contain a little more omega-3 fatty acids, but the difference is very small.
95 percent of eggs sold in Finland are white eggs.
