Whenever possible, I buy eggs from a neighbor down the road. They're great but I've noticed that the yolk is a darker "orange" color and the white seems thicker. I've never had any problems, just wondered what causes the difference?

These eggs are SO delicious!!! And they will absolutely RUIN a person for buying commercial eggs! They taste so much better, they thicken so much better, and they bake in any recipe so much better!
I wish we were closer and I could get them more often! Alas, it's a 2-hour drive for either of us...but seven or eight times a year, you can hear me whooping for joy!
