What’s The Difference Between Brown Eggs And White Eggs (Other Than The Obvious Color)?

I’ve always wondered what the difference was between white and brown eggs. Do they taste different? Is one more nutritionally better for you? I found a website that seems to clear up the issue. It states that:

“‘White shelled eggs are produced by hens with white feathers and ear lobes. Brown shelled eggs are produced by hens with red feathers and red ear lobes. There is no difference in taste or nutrition between white and brown eggs.’ The people at Crisco (who may know even more than the egg nutritionists) go further to say, ‘They simply come from two different breeds of chickens. Brown eggs, however, are more expensive because the chickens that lay them eat more than those that lay white eggs.'”

Now THAT makes sense. Now go eat your eggs!
