You Can't Really Dye Brown Eggs

If you have chickens chances are you have brown layers.

For those of you that don't have chickens and don't know ... some chickens lay white eggs, some brown, some blue, some pink, some green.  It really is breed specific. We have a white layer, 3 brown layers and a light brown/purpleish layer.

I read online that you can dye brown eggs.

I should have known better.

You sort of can but they come out all weird and earthy and not at all appetizing for this Momma to eat even though she doesn't want to waste the good eggs.

Next year we will stick to dying the white eggs only.

  1. We dye our brown eggs every Easter. We get beautiful nature inspired colors. We've never gotten a brown or a gray. My kids prefer dying white eggs though. They like the brighter colors.
