The variety of colors of chickens' eggs is surprising and beautiful, but color of the egg shell does not effect nutritional value or taste of the egg. Those qualities are effected by diet, health, and environment. Hens that have access to the outdoors and are able to forage for food lay eggs with enhanced flavor and nutritional value.
The Sussex is a dual-purpose, heritage chicken breed. Hens are excellent producers of large, cream-colored or light-brown eggs that they lay through the coldest winter months. In addition, they are meaty chickens that fatten easily, and their tender, succulent flesh is second to none.
We're raising chickens at our house! This little lady is on our list of chickens wants. She's a black copper maran. This kind of chicken lays chocolate colored eggs! Eggs can come in lots of cool colors and next year I hope to have enough chickens to get natural Easter eggs--no dyes needed!
