For those of us who enjoy eggs from pasture-raised hens, the difference is obvious as soon as you crack open that first egg. The yolks are richer, darker yellow-orange than conventional cage-raised eggs. The whites stand up higher and aren’t as runny as the caged eggs. They just plain taste better to most people. But are grass-fed (pasture-raised) eggs really any nutritionally better for you than eggs from cage-raised factory hens? The short answer, YES!
