  2. A difference between brown and white eggs is that brown eggs are slightly less likely to crack when being boiled.

  3. I have notice in fresh farm eggs we sometimes get, that there seems to be blood spots on the yolk more often in brown eggs. No science here, just my observation.

  4. Regardless of the difference, I just feel that brown eggs look more natural than white eggs…

    I have some xenophobic feeling about eating white eggs, and maybe it’s because I am brown skin…

  5. I wasn’t aware chickens had earlobes…

    I normally get brown eggs, mostly because my mom always bought brown eggs

  6. Than why is it that the free range eggs are always brown, and typical commercial eggs always white?

  7. I’ve noticed brown eggs have darker yolks.
