In the european country I live in, all eggs are brown!

They use the peels of onions- red or yellow, as a natural dye. They take old nylon stockings, cut and tie off with string around each egg, first placing a leaf or flower pressed against the egg. This way the onion skins dye the eggs leaving the silohuette and even other stem/vein details of the leafs...they are really quite cool!

Why can't you dye a brown egg?

I've heard that the colors of dye look darker and nicer on brown eggs.

I've dyed brown eggs the past couple of years.  You can absolutely dye them.  The color obviously looks different on the eggs, but it's still beautiful.  Instead of bright colors we ended up with warm, rich colors.

How do you "not know" you bought brown eggs? Don't you always open the carton to look at them to make sure they're not broken?
