Do you know where brown eggs and white eggs come from? It’s simple: eggs with white shells come from birds with white feathers and eggs with brown shells come from hens with brown feathers.

You may also want to know that eggs aren't just delicious. They're also extremely nutritious, an excellent source of protein and provide a number of essential nutrients. In fact, eggs are one of nature's most nutritious foods. One large egg is only 70 calories and 5 grams of fat, contains 6 grams of high-quality protein, and provides 14 essential nutrients such as vitamins A, D and E, folate, iron, zinc, and choline. This means eating eggs is good for your bones, teeth, skin and eyes!
