There is no way to find out how the inside of an egg will look like, often time you will get one yolk sometimes maybe two - but can you tell which color they will be? There might be a way of guessing.

In fact, the color of the egg yolks are directly linked to how the hen was fed. So how yellow should they be? Because we want the healthiest option for us and our family! 

The Broad Ripple Farmers Market states that darker is better! In fact, the darker the yolk is, the more nutrients it contains. Most eggs at the grocery store come from factory farms and are mostly only fed grains which will give a light yellow yolk.

Here are the difference between the kind of eggs you can get.

1. Pastured eggs - highly nutritious

When their diet is varied, hens will give eggs that contains much more vitamin A - great for bone and eye strength. They will also contain more vitamin omega-3 fatty acids a great "fat" that lowers cholesterol and blood pressure. 

In a few words, you should have the eggs with the darker yolks for more nutriments! If you can try to buy pastured eggs or free range. They might be more pricey but they contain much more nutriments and are healthier.

Or best, get your own eggs with backyard chickens!  More and more people are doing it and it's great! At least you will know where you eggs are coming from!
