OK, for anyone that wants to find out more about organic/omega/free-range, check out organicvalley.com. Most likely they are the ones you buy.
http://www.philsfresheggs.com/ under construction for now. oand
http://www.nestfresh.com/eggs.html Fresh eggs are available all over the US.

Omega-3 are overhyped, IMO, not a significant source of Omega 3, not enought to justify the double, maybe triple price. I personally do not like the taste.
Omega-3 Eggs
Our family farmers treat their hens to an all-vegetarian organic diet rich in flax seed. Each of our "Heart Healthy" Omega-3 Organic Eggs contains an impressive 225mg of Omega-3, and is a good source of Vitamin E.

brown vs white... just different breed of chicken.
Cage-free, not in cages,
Free-range, able to run around the farm/compound.
Organic, Only fed an organic diet.
fertile, in compound, free to socialize ;),

There are differences in tastes, and shells. Subtle tho. If you have an organic egg. Usually the shell is thicker, and yolk a little more dense and yellow/orange.

If I had the money, I would support free range. I have been to Organic Valley - Awesome place, and to Phil's, another great place. The operations are unique, The chic operation was fascianating. little peeping chics all over the barn.

I buy cases of eggs, like 0311, I eat them a lot. I a large plate of scrambled eggs for breakfast, with some mexican hot sauce on top.. hmmm peppery goodness.

Q: I'm confused. First, I hear that eggs raise cholesterol. Then, I hear they don't. What's the truth?
No name/No state given

Eggs do contain cholesterol. According to the American Heart Association, saturated fat and cholesterol in the foods you eat increase your blood cholesterol level. Although saturated fat is the main culprit, cholesterol also plays a role. Reducing the amount of saturated fat and cholesterol in your diet helps lower your blood cholesterol level.

Some research suggests that dietary cholesterol has little effect on blood cholesterol in some people. But in others, it has a big effect. If you have high blood pressure or a family history of cardiovascular disease, it makes sense to limit eggs in your diet. Talk to your doctor about what's appropriate in your specific situation.

The yolk of the egg has all the cholesterol about 212 milligrams (mg) of cholesterol. Recommendations are to limit dietary cholesterol to 300 mg a day 200 mg a day if you have high blood cholesterol. This allows for three to four egg yolks a week. Egg whites and egg substitutes are cholesterol-free and can be used in place of whole eggs. In general, two egg whites are the equivalent of one whole egg in cooking. Check the label on egg substitutes for the equivalent.

Im not making an opinion just thought you all would like to read this. It was on msn.com my homepage so I clicked it.
