I was tooling around and found an article about the eggs we buy…. talks about the difference in cage free eggs.

Denver Business Journal article

Most people today think that you can tell yard eggs by the color of the shell. They think white shells mean caged eggs and brown shells mean yard eggs.

Not true. The color of the shell is determined by the varity of the chicken. The best way to tell a yard egg from a caged egg is by the color of the yoke. A caged chicken’s egg yoke will be light yellow. A chicken free to roam around will lay an egg with an orange color. The darker the color, the more bugs the chicken has eaten.

Now that I live far away from home, every time I go to Colombia I’m always impressed by how orange egg yolks are. Makes sense now that Pete explained it…
