Color your cartoon egg. The white is typically its namesake color, with perhaps some brown on the edges. The yolk is yellow or orange.

Did you know? Egg yolks from "country" or farm-raised eggs are typically darker in color than those mass-produced for sale in stores. This is due to differences in the hens' diet and egg-laying frequency.
