White or Brown!

I lay white eggs!
Are white eggs healthier than brown eggs?  Are the egg's color a pruduct of the health of the chicken?  Does the egg color have more to do with the quality of feed they are getting?

The answer to the above questions is NO!  The eggs color is based on species of chicken.  The rule of thumb for the most part, if the hen has a light colored ear flap, the egg will be white.  And dark colored ear flat will be brown eggs.  There is an exception to this rule, with the so called Easter Egg chickens.  The Araucana and Ameraucana will lay eggs that are colored from pink to blue.
