What are cage-free Brown eggs?
Cage-free brown eggs come from hen breeds such as New Hampshire, Rhode Island Red, and Plymouth Rock hens that can roam indoors. According to USDA cage-free guidelines, laying hens must have nesting boxes, scratch areas, perches, and uninterrupted food and water access. All cage-free areas must allow for the hens’ natural behavior and movement.

Difference between cage-free brown eggs and cage-free white eggs
Cage-free brown eggs and cage-free white eggs differ primarily in color. Brown eggs may have thicker shells, and they may cost more since brown egg breeds require more feed, increasing production costs.
Why are brown eggs brown?
Hens that lay brown eggs introduce the pigment protoporphyrin IX as they move their eggs through their oviducts. This pigment, found in hemoglobin, is responsible for the egg’s brown color. White eggs are white since the shell is made from calcium carbonate.
