Biochemically dyies from our body get eliminated immediately, pigments are not.


yup... u r ryt ... not dye... i meant pigment from diet... tnx 4 correcting me.. i got confused as there are some pigments that can be used as dyes (which i generalized into coloring material :lol: )...

honee_v wrote:_at_ Dr.Stein.. eeweelll loveangel did not say in diff color.. the question is just if its possible to take the color of the dye and i said its possible... it might not be the entire range of color spectrum... but the possibility... its there... :wink:

I am sorry If I misinterpreted, but I translated this sentence: "is the egg yolk will obtain the color of the dye that was being used?" for "will the egg yolk will have the same color as the dye we give thru chicken's food?" :roll:

I think the taste wouldn't change, because the protein is still similar.

However, it can be changed if you add different spices :P

have any of you been to the farmers market and seen some chickens that are blue or red? Do they just dye(or highly pigment) the chicks after they hatch or is it some other messing with the egg? Or the momma chicken?

The farmer wouldn't tell me...

BTW they do sell double yolk chickens in New Mexico and California... As far as I know... not commercially though... just farmer market stuff...

Post by krisleemer » Tue Jul 24, 2007 5:00 pm

Okay me and my husband are expecting a baby. I'm only 6 weeks along. But we've had many "signs" that it may be twins. We have cracked 8 eggs in a 12 carton and ALL of them have been Double yolked. We are freaking out b/c we KNOW how rare this is....so does that mean we could be ahving twins?????
