They look as if they were dyed with food coloring for Easter.
They are not.
These eggs were a gift to Marlene from her neighbor when the family was visiting in Hardy, Virginia. The variety of colors in the shells was amazing to me. And they tasted delicious.

I’ve been buying my eggs this year at the farmers markets and one vendor’s eggs look very much like those that were given to you. It’s a bit of a surprise to open the carton and see so many pastel colors.

I wonder what makes others light brown, and others darker brown. How did you cook them?
