Do You Know Which Yoke Came From A Healthy Chicken?

In a perfect world, all of the eggs we purchase will have a rich orange yolk, which is said to have more nutritional value than a bland yellow yolk. It’s pretty near impossible to figure out which eggs will contain the desired yolk before cracking them open, but a curious woman recently went on a quest to get to the bottom of how to figure it out beforehand. As shared by Providr, here’s a simple way to narrow down your hunt.

The woman decided to purchase eggs from three different sources to see if one of them may consistently provide the desired yolk. She grabbed one carton each from a market that offered eggs from pure grain fed free-range chickens, a big chain supermarket, and from a local farmer. The woman quickly returned home and got to work.

She would separately crack one egg from each carton into a frying pan to examine it. The egg from the local farmer was the clear winner and offered a much more vibrant yolk than those from the other two sources, which delivered yolks that were a bland yellow color.

Further investigation led her to discover that the diet of the hen that produced the eggs plays a huge factor in the finished product. By extension, the healthier the hen is, the more colorful the yolks of the eggs will be.
