Green eggs, you say, are loved by all foxes,
The best eggs they store in great big, bejeweled boxes.
Be they white, or green, or spotted, or brown,
Eggs are treated as if they're wearing a crown.


With trumpets, and schnozzhorns, and cymbals, and whockets
(whockets are whistles you keep in your pockets)

Foxes make a big deal of the eggs in their boxes.

Love it Bucky! Well done!

In Barcelona there is no price difference between Brown or White Egg shells however, I buy Bio or Organic Free Range and they are approx. 50 Euro cents more for a half dozen and 1.00 Euro more for a dozen ..

Brown Shelled eggs are more common here.

I have chickens and that certainly doesn't make me an expert but here is my thoughts, white eggs and brown eggs taste the same if you raise the chickens the same way. The shell depends on their age. The color depends on the breed. The taste of the egg depends on what they eat. It's usually stronger if they free range. (Bugs and such) Brown eggs are usually more expensive because chickens that lay brown eggs are thought to eat more (therefore raising your cost to house them) AND people have a misconception that brown eggs are better for you.
And perhaps the white eggs are lower because of all the weather issues, maybe they are feeding cheaper feed? I'm not sure

I have found that brown eggs usually taste better around here. I always assumed that it was because it was more likely that they came from the smaller farms as opposed to the big chicken factories. I never thought it was the shell colour that made the difference.

Edit, oh yeah, the brown ones usually cost a bit more than the white ones here.

Foxes think brown eggs taste better, as well,
served on a platter made from a special Neek shell.

Now, Neek shells are large shells that are particularly flat,
which makes no sense at all, since all Neeks are fat.

But in their sleek shells the Neek live their lives with great glee,
thinking their fat selves are slimmer than you, or him - the next guy, or me.

They care not for shaming, of body, or mind,
which allows them to enjoy colored eggs of all kinds.

BT, you've been feeling very Seussian lately.

I believe that to be a very good thing
Seussian thought is the essence of being.

I'm glad that my rhymes were so lame,
As just to myself I lay blame,

Hip hip hooray, can you see?
It brought out our own BuckyT
whom which we'll all read with great glee

And Princess did say as she stood on the quay
'Oh your Seussian thoughts do so quench our drought
as we ponder the thought
of eggs, either white brown .... or naught.'


sigh, will never be as good as Bucky's

That was good, dragn.

Seussian anapestic tetrameter is easy and fun.

You just need to rhyme and think in 4s, then let your imagination go. Normally, the rule of threes works, but that has no soul. It's not musical enough, well, in the 4/4 of which we're used to.

Finally remembered to check the egg prices while I was out.

The white eggs ranged from about $1 - $1.50 a dozen, they were all store brand.

There was one other brand of white eggs that were in the $3.50 range, it was a specific brand and promoting 'vegetarian fed' chickens.

The brown eggs were all specific brands. All mentioning one or more of the following : Vegetarian fed, antibiotic free, free range. The least expensive were $1.89, but apparently that was a weekly special. Not sure what they normally go for. All the other brown eggs ( the ones not on special) were in the $3 to $5 range.
