My Omega 3 Eggs Have White Yolks!
On a whim, I purchased Life Brand Omega 3 eggs yesterday. I just returned from my cottage and the fridge was bare. Upon opening the container, I was irritated to find that several of the eggs were extremely small. I selected 4 of the larger eggs to hard boil. Once boiled and cooled, I was shocked at how difficult they were to peel. Omega 3s are always tough to peel, but this was far more extreme than previous times. I normally buy organic eggs, but grabbed the Omega 3s for convenience, as I was at the drug store and trying to avoid a grocery store visit as well. The eggs inside the shell were tough, rubbery and the yolks were off-white, rather than the deep yellow that is typical of Omega 3 yolks. I have written Shopper's Drug Mart to complain, but now I'm wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience. Is something wrong with the eggs or hens? What is accounting for this strange texture, lack of colour and flavour?

has a few comments of note. One of them says that the pigment in yolks is dependent on the diet of the hen, and the more corn they're fed, the deeper the colour can get. Either way they're safe to eat, but no flavour is a downer.
