Which Egg Do You Think Came from a Healthy Chicken?
Unfortunately, a lot of people do not know the main difference between a healthy and natural egg and an unhealthy one.
Eating healthy eggs is vital to our overall health and well-being. This being said, we decided to help you learn which eggs are the healthiest ones and why.
Know Your Food
On the photo below, there are 3 distinct types of egg yolk. The first yolk is dark orange, the second one is yellow, and the third has a light orange color. According to you, which yolk came from a healthy chicken?
Let’s take a look at the answers now
Dark orange yolk
This egg came from a completely healthy chicken and it means that they were given freedom and enough space to move. They were not kept in dark rooms without natural sunlight but enjoy daylight outside. These chickens are fed with grains and also eat all kinds of insects, which is why their yolks are the most nutritive.
These folks come from unhealthy chickens raised in factories that live in terrible conditions. They have no freedom, space, or natural sunlight and they eat grains only. They live in filth and a lot of them have been hatched from incubators, which is not a natural process.
Light orange yolk
These eggs usually come from local groceries and these chickens were also raised at big farms. Though they do not live in horrible conditions as the chicken in big factories, they still live in inadequate surroundings.
They lead a poor diet, comprised of grains only, without any natural foods which chicken enjoy and need in order to be healthy, for example, insects.
This doesn’t make sense. Since all organic farm free range eggs are light yellow and the ones produced on big commercial farms are dark orange
Stef, sorry, I think you have that incorrect. If you are buying “organic free range eggs” and they are light yellow, then the supplier is tricking you with non-material verbiage. It happens all the time. “Organic” means nothing at all; the only organic crops that are regulated are 3-4 grains, not eggs. Even if they are fed an “organic diet” it is probably just feed corn, low in nutrition, low in protein. “Free Range” just means the chickens aren’t in tiny little pens, they still are in pens, usually indoors, they are just allowed to walk around. So those words mean nothing. There is more content in the words “pasture raised” but this is still mostly BS, or CS in this case. I bought eggs for the first 45 years of my life, we have been raising free range chickens for 2 years now and the eggs are beautifully orange and very flavorful. In addition to free range for bugs and grasses, we let them finish off the garden after growing season and feed them daily meal worms and high-end scratch with seeds, nuts, and good corn. To be honest, once I have raised my own chickens producing high-protein eggs, I will never call a store-bought egg “orange” again, they are not. I hope this helps. BTW, if you do raise your own chickens, feed them lots of protein, they are omnivores, not vegetarians.
