View Full Version : Has anyone used brown eggs for dyed Easter eggs?

A farmer friend gave us about 3 dz. brown eggs. Was just wondering if they'll look any different when dyed. Not that David & I will really care since it's just us. They must look a little different though.

Hmmm, I am sure we must've dyed brown easter eggs when we first moved here. Rememeber the chickens we used to have? They laid brown eggs. I dont' remember though.

Give it a whirl and post pics for us to check out! Maybe ink them up and try Tami's crayon resist technique...

We have. It depends upon how BROWN they are...Farm eggs usually have that soft color to them that makes the color a bit deeper and harder to dye. Personally, I LOVE the taste of farm eggs and so I started to just eat the brown eggs and buy cheap white ones to dye (since we hardly ever ate them after all that hiding and playing and sitting around). (Those farm eggs will last a LONG time in the fridge..I couldn't stand the thought of wasting good eggs..)
