There's no difference between white and light brown eggs, there are some farmers who've been able to breed hens that lay eggs in other colors too.
It's just a pigment or genetics thing.

It's due to the breed of hen...there really is no health benefit to brown eggs. Which people often seem to think.

come on brown eggs to taste better. You see my grandparents are from Europe and they had a farm and chickens lay brown eggs not white ones. Most people in Europe eat brown eggs. The white ones are nasty they add something to it.

Brown eggs are brown. White eggs are white.

The difference is cosmetic only.  The eggs are laid by different breeds of hen.  There is no nutritional or flavor differences.  If you believe there is, that is only because you want to believe there is.

There's no difference in taste.

Apart from the colour - none. Many people seem think that one tastes better than the other, but that's just a psychological thing. The only difference is the pigment in the egg shell.

I find the brown shells a little thicker and harder to remove when they're boiled than the white ones. They taste the same though.
