Why is it better to buy white and not brown eggs
Most of us think that the color of the eggshell does not play any role and it is possible not to pay attention. But it's not and the best proof that the color is of fundamental importance, is the campaign launched by farmers in many countries.

Such a measure is rarely applied to birds bearing white eggs, as they perfectly get along with each other even in crowded factory farms. What is the reason for such different relationships to the canines in birds of the same species, scientists can not yet say. Many experts are inclined to believe that plays a major role in what conditions are birds.
