Sorry, I can barely read you posts with all the formatting, so I had to put your post into the "usual" formatting to make sure I was reading it right.

Farm fresh eggs do have orange yolks. People who eat only supermarket eggs have no idea what fresh eggs look like, nor how they taste. It is most certainly worth it.

Clover will make for some deeper colored yolks, too.
I stand corrected. I bought a dozen eggs from the farm a couple of days ago, right from the hen herself and not only were they delicious and fresh but the yolks were very, very orange.

I've noticed that when I buy the really expensive organic / free range eggs at Whole Foods, the really super-expensive brands that only appear in health food stores, they do tend to have a deep orange colour, versus the pale yellow colour you get from most supermarket brands.

I wouldn't bother paying more though for Eggland's best, or any of the big mainstream brands. There does not seem to be any difference between the "organic" / "free run" big brand eggs and the everyday supermarket eggs. They look identical to me.

Frankly, I'd never be able to tell the difference in taste between the worst egg in the world and the best egg in the world. I probably have the worst sense of taste in the world. But I don't mind paying $2 or even $5 extra if there's a chance that it means the chickens are being treated decently.

I pay extra for one brand I cannot recall right now. If I can't get my usual brand, I get whatever is labeled "vegetarian feed". I just cannot stomach the idea of chickens being fed chicken parts. Cannibal chickens... that's just messed up and I don't care if they willingly eat one another.

^ I did not need that image stuck in my head, Ekim. While I understand the sentiment, I think your comment borders on the political.
Buy what you want and eat what you want but please don't share those images with me.
Thanks, Pie Susan
