We are ruled by stereotypes everywhere. Even in the case of ordinary chicken eggs. Many believe that white eggs are factory-made and therefore less healthy than brown eggs. In turn, brown for many is associated with a homemade, natural product rich in various useful substances. But, if you look closely, you can often see the “production” date applied to both. That is, both types are “factory”. But what is the difference then? Does it depend on the chicken?
Yes! At the same time, the color of the eggshell directly depends on the color of the chicken. White – lay the same white eggs, dark colored chickens – brown. The color cannot be a sign of a factory, because the hen “produces” the egg anyway. If you have family in the village, ask what kind of eggs their hens lay. By the way, some representatives 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 depend only on what the hen eats. If you feed a brown hen well, she will lay a good brown egg. If you pamper more white “bird” – the eggs from it will be more delicious. Does the thickness of the shell depend on the color?
No, the thickness of the shell does not depend on its color. The age of the chicken plays a big role here. It is not difficult to notice that in young birds the shell of the egg is thicker, in older birds it is thinner. This applies to white, brown and spotted eggs. Why are brown eggs more expensive?
As a rule, dark-colored chickens are more “global”, respectively, require more food and can carry larger eggs. This may be the reason for the higher price of brown eggs. Although, if you look closely at supermarket shelves, you can see that brown and white eggs come in different sizes: from very small to obscenely large. And what does it taste like?
This is another stereotype: many people find brown eggs tastier. If you compare the house and the factory, it will be so. But, with the same nutritional regimen and diet, their taste will not depend on the color of the egg. Homemade eggs bought from grandma at the market are much tastier because her hens eat very well. And grandmothers know it. And so do not hesitate to put a high price on their natural product.
