Colors of Chicken Eggs Naturally - Science and Technology 11

Fig 01- Several colors of eggs.

I know that chicken eggs have many colors in nature, but 3 colors are stick in my “head” only:

- brown
- green
- white

What factors determine eggs colors?

Michigan State University Extension (December 29, 2013) said that genetics which relate to breeds are primary factor to decide eggs colors.

It is facts that 60 breeds are recorded in the USA, and chicken breeds are estimated hundreds, at least 500 breeds in the world.

Hence, not surprising that we might find many different egg’s colors either in the groceries or in the community farmings.

what is the most common egg colors?

White, especially in the big grocery such as Walmart

We might observe some other colors such as:

- brown
- green
- blue- green
- cream
- pink
- blue
- chocolate brown

In addition to genetic, eggs colors are added by pigment called as “Porphyrins.” This pigment is produced from uterus of hen.

Do you favor to certain egg colors?

  2. Colour doesn’t matter to me. Sometimes we get brown eggs, usually it’s white.

  3. Sometimes when I boil white eggs I add some onion peel into the water and the eggs turn brown 🙂

    I think creame is the most common egg colour here.

  10. Tanza, My wife always tries to buy the freshest eggs but she looks for brown eggs or multi-colored eggs in the stores. The more orange the yoke, the fresher the eggs. Stay Safe and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  13. I like brown tho I've eaten all 3 colors. I used to get eggs from an individual who liked to keep chickens and they were different types of chickens. Thus they had 3 colors of eggs.

  14. Our chickens lay brown eggs. One breed lays strictly light brown while the others lay dark brown and sometimes they are speckled---like freckles.

  17. I've never seen green eggs, even white ones are very rare, American are white probably because you don't feed your poor chicken with grass. Ours are always brownish with very golden yolks inside.

  19. The less tampered with the better. A variety of colors looks so pretty on display but it's really what's beneath the shell that counts.

  20. Colors where I shop are almost invariably a shade of brown.

  22. It is always amazing to me that some people really think that the quality of the egg is influenced by the colour of the shell, and are actually willing to pay a little more for brown eggs.

  23. White color is very common here. So far i have not seen green one.
