Do you know why some eggs are brown?

I have always wondered why some eggs are brown verse white.  It turns out that brown eggs are more expensive because they come from a different type of hen than the ones that lay white eggs.  There are different breeds of hen.  Those that lay the brown eggs are larger and therefore require more food.  The brown eggs have no added extra nutritional value.  However, eggs labeled omega 3 eggs do have more of the healthy DHA because the hens that produce them are fed an enhanced diet.
