Do you Favor to Certain Chicken Egg Colors? - Part 1

Thursday, January 20, 2022

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

- brown

- green

- white


Fig 01- Several colors of eggs.


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.


Nutritional foods which are consumed by hen may affect on egg colors such as (just few examples):

- water quality

- non-starch polysaccharides

- enzymes

- calcium

- phosphorus

- vitamins

Other factors are believed to contribute to colors of chicken eggs:

- general stress

- heat stress

- disease

- production system

- hen’s age


Fig 03- Just for illustration


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

There are more than 10 common chicken breeds in the USA, some of them are:

- California Gray Chicken

- Brahma Chicken

- Buckeye Chicken

- Holland Chicken

- Delaware Chicken


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

  14. We used to have chickens at our other house. We loved having fresh eggs to eat. They taste so much better than the eggs in the store. My friend in Utah has a lot of different types of chickens that lay different colored eggs. Now if we can't get fresh eggs from the farmer we have to get them from the store. Have a great weekend!

  16. We just buy what is available. We do notice the farm stand eggs look healthier since they tend to be quite different in color from what we see in grocery stores.
