Which eggs are healthy?
Eggs are available from various chickens that is broiler chicken and also poultry hens as well as poultry farms that are usually found in Indian homes which are domesticated and fed which then produce healthy eggs and meat.
The eggs obtained from broiler chicken are usually sold more often and almost everywhere as these are available in abundance in markets. The eggs that are available from poultry are found rarely but extremely healthy and should be consumed more often.
They are good to be eaten during winters, rainy or during cold weathers as they produce lots of warmth. The broiler chicken eggs too can be consumed when poultry eggs are not available but the healthiest option is to go for domesticated eggs.

Color of eggs:
The color of eggs is either white or light brown in color. Broiler chicken eggs are usually white in color and poultry eggs color is usually light brown in color or brown in color.
Size of the eggs:
The eggs that we buy can be small and oval in shape or bigger in size and oval shape. The size of the eggs from domesticated poultry eggs are usually smaller in size compared to the eggs from broiler chicken.
Which eggs taste good:?
The eggs obtained from poultry taste better than the broiler chicken eggs. The reason is poultry eggs are raised in good environment and with lots of health care tips but broilers are just multiplied artificially which could also be a bit unhealthy and do not taste well.
Why should domesticated eggs be preferred?
These eggs are given by hens that are fed in a healthy manner in poultry farms and also taken care well by the people of poultry farms where as broiler chickens are purely produced by artificial insemination only for the purpose of selling their eggs, chicken and other stuff.
The eggs are produced in large quantities by artificial methods which are healthy but not more than poultry eggs.
I would suggest to get poultry eggs from the poultry farm once in a while and include in diet.
