KUSA - There are 3.8-million hens in Colorado producing more than 1 billion eggs every year.

Eggs are a nutrient-dense food, containing every major vitamin and mineral except vitamin C. The surface of an egg shell has over 10,000 pores, and there is no nutritional difference between a brown and a white egg.

Look for Colorado eggs at your local grocery store or at restaurants across the state. Each month, the Colorado Department of Agriculture features a different commodity to highlight the variety and quality of products grown in the state.
