I have a combo of brown and blue eggs in my fridge right now. These are very very rich eggs, but they are organic, local and free range.

Andy, have not heard that tune re brown eggs since we lived in New England.

There, I believe, the most common breed was Rhode Island Reds, and they lay brown eggs. And so we bought brown eggs.

Have noticed a difference in price here and there, but it makes no sense.

At least to us they taste the same.

Now we are in a white egg area so buy those.

I know there is no difference between the two, but I love brown eggs. Like Marmalady, it's an aesthetic thing for me.

Either works for me. But I'm partial to brown for nostalgiac reasons.

Cool

I find when making hard boiled eggs for egg salad, I have a lot harder time peeling the brown one, which is why we usually buy white.

Brown eggs have more frequent flyer miles than whites and so get to Hawaii more often for the sunshine.

I buy whatever I grab, but have noticed that brown eggshells are easier to pick out of your batter if you happen to mess up. LOL.
