Guess what? There is one huge (and i mean HUGE) difference between these two types of eggs.Brown eggs are brown in color and white eggs are white! Other than that, there is no difference between both kinds of eggs. At least not in terms of nutritional value or taste.But yes, the size and price are of both kinds of eggs are different. Brown eggs are more expensive because the breed of chicken which lays the brown egg eats more, and hence the cost per egg increases.So whats the difference in the chicken breed? The hen which produces white eggs have white feathers and white ear lobes. The hen which produces the brown egg has red feathers and red ear lobes.[TABLE="align: center"] <tbody>[TR] [TD="align: left"]White feathered chicken [/TD] [TD="align: left"]Red feathered chicken [/TD] [/TR] </tbody>[/TABLE] Way back in history when commercial egg producers used only white feathered hens for production, brown eggs were rare, and were produced only by the home grown flock of chicken. Yes, in those ancient times the brown egg tasted much better.When commercial producers realized that brown eggs were in demand, they started raising flocks of red feathered chicken along with the white ones. Both types of chicken were fed with the same bland commercial diet, and since that point in time both the eggs have absolutely no difference in taste or nutritional value.
