I made two batches of scrambled eggs (with pepper) this morning. They are almost unrecognisable as the same food. I had camera troubles and when I finally came to take the pic, someone had helped themselves to some eggs. You can see which they chose.
So, do you want "freerange" eggs or freerange eggs?
Some purists say that a backyard doesn't constitute free range, neither does a barn opened an hour a day or dirt yards resembling a barren moonscape. It certainly does make a difference though, even if you dont' have a few acres for true freerange hens.
I have had caged hens eggs that are more yellow than those on the left and sometimes the yolks are more orange/yellow than my hens, but when you cook them like this, there is a depth and intensity to the colour that can't be manufactured. I think the layer mix must have beta carotene or something added to make the caged eggs more appealing and healthy looking.
I just wish my chooks would all start laying so I don't have to buy an inferior product ;)
