ï»¿If you have the time and space to raise chicken egg layers, it is a great way to feed your family healthy eggs full of nutrients. Eggs raised organically, from chickens that have been fed organic feed and have been allowed to graze on natural grass are healthier than eggs available in grocery stores. In fact, eggs raised organically have been known to be lower in cholesterol, and to be higher in Vitamin E and Omega-3 fatty acids, all of which are great for overall health.
While not all types of chickens are suitable for egg laying, all chickens lay eggs. Chickens also lay different colored eggs, depending on their breeds. You can tell the color egg a chicken will lay by inspecting the skin next to their ears. If the skin is a white-ish color, then that chicken will most likely lay white eggs. Similarly, a chicken with reddish-brown skin by their ears will inevitably lay brown eggs. A chicken with red ear skin will most likely lay blue-green and/or blue colored eggs. Remember, the color of the egg makes no difference in how it will taste, or the nutritional content. Rather, the color of the egg is a matter of personal preference.
