Orange yolks

  • 9

I know this might be a strange request but where can I find eggs with orangiest yolks possible. Don't care if they're white, brown, free range, organic, grain fed, etc as long as the yolks are a nice deep orange yellow.

  1. Why do you want them like that? As I understand, it's a matter of what they're fed.

      Just preference and taste is more intense.

    2. Probably best to find someone with chickens and offer to pay for the feed in exchange for eggs...

      1. The farm through which I get my CSA veggies sells eggs from their farm. I rarely buy them but, when I have, I am surprised by how orange the yolks are. The farm's name is Ferme Melilot. I think they recently rented a booth at JTM with 5 other farms. If you want, you can contact them through one of the ways listed on their website http://www.fermemelilot.com/nous-join...

          "If you like deep yellow eggs, provide your flock with lots of leafy greens or marigold petals. ... If you prefer darker eggs that are orange-colored, give your chickens carrot peels, less-than-perfect tomatoes, and peppers."

            And remember that chickens aren't meant to be vegetarians. Give them access to bugs and such.
