    I wonder what countries they meant? For some reason in more tropical countries in Africa like Tanzania egg yolks get pale, almost colourless . It's a bit off putting.I've always wondered why and if it was vit a shortage. They may or may not get added food at all beyond what they pick up for themselves but that should be pretty good I'd think. (Insects, frogs, lizards if mine are anything to go by! )

    !! You know those new ' the world is running out of food and we all must learn to be responsible citizens and eat insects' articles you sometimes see in the news ( are they softening us up to accept weird insect parts in our food i wonder??) well I always think that if we eat real free range eggs we're eating insects already, just recycled through a chicken. So much nicer!
