wanderingjew has a point. This really is an old thread!
 
Personally, I buy the organic, free roaming, pasture raised brown eggs that have fairly thick shells from my local Wholefoods. They come from local farms within a hundred miles from Dallas. They're delicious!
 
The eggs that are very light blue, green, and tan in color usually come from Araucana chickens which are smaller, "scrawny" looking birds. They're the same kind of chickens Martha Stewart raises. IMHO, they're the best tasting but, also the hardest to come by. You have to do a little work trying to find someone raising them.
 
Deep orange yolks (as found in Europe) are a result of Marigolds fed to the chickens.
 
Adjudicator: Many thanks for the helpful link.

        When hard boiling brown eggs, they are difficult to peel. No difference otherwise that I can tell.

            Those are most likely from Araucana chickens as I mentioned above. Delicious eggs!

              The color of the shell doesn't effect the taste of the egg.  It is the color of the yolk that is important.  I am on a constant search for bright orange yolks just like the White Leghorn eggs that my grandmother's chickens produced.  I have found eggs like this a couple times in central Indiana, but not recently.  On my grandmother's farm we always ate the pullet eggs(smaller than hens eggs).  My grandmother saved the largest & best eggs for her paying customers.
