    We used to have a large flock of half-bred Araucana (sp?) chickens. They laid pastel colored eggs. We’d get blue, pink, lavender, and green eggs. And the hens themselves were spectacularly marked and colored. They roamed free on our horse ranch and were great at breaking up and spreading the poop piles and eating the parasite eggs & larvae in those piles, thus breaking their reproductive cycles. Also, we noticed that the first egg a young hen laid often had double yolks (always bright orange from all the insects they ate, and fertilized because of the randy roosters).

    What I’d like to know is why brown eggs are a dollar more than white ones. They don’t taste any different.

    I had a (very young) cousin who told my grandmother, in all seriousness, that the brown eggs were laid by the rooster. She didn’t stop laughing about that for a month.

    Evidence that a dairy farm has experienced an earthquake:

    The cows give milkshakes and the hens lay scrambled eggs!

    Yoo Hoo cows of course. Waiting for the strawberry milk cows to be created.

    That has odd implications for dark-skinned women.

    If you read the ingredients, you will see the Yoo-Hoo comes from a chemistry lab.

    apparently the Araucana chicken only lays blue eggs, and only the mixed breed mongrels lay pastel eggs. Someone got ripped off……..

    According to the 1964 edition of Childcraft, brown eggs come from Plymouth Rock and Rhode Island Red hens.

    The brown eggs cost more because they are laid by Free Range chickens. Free range chickens are allowed to forage for food and get a more balanced and nutritious diet than the chemical-laced food fed to commercial chickens.
