Rainbow eggs are local eggs, and local eggs are fresh.

Although all eggs start out with white shells, the blue or brown dye (or both) applied to the shells of some breeds results in eggs that come in almost all the hues of the rainbow.

The speed at which the eggs rotate during this process can result in speckled eggs (slow rotation)...

What are the facts? Again and again and again-what are the facts? Shun wishful thinking, ignore divine revelation, forget what “the stars foretell,” avoid opinion, care not what the neighbors think, never mind the unguessable “verdict of history”--what are the facts, and to how many decimal places? You pilot always into an unknown future; facts are your single clue. Get the facts!

For all I know, robin's eggs en casserole would be a delight to the palate.

I've seen raw robin's eggs used to top a seafood salad. I passed.

As to naturally colored chicken eggs, an acquaintance gave me a couple homegrown ones once. They were delicious.
