Celebrate World Egg Day with Colorado Eggs
Celebrate World Egg Day on October 11 with Colorado eggs. There are more than 4.5 million laying hens in Colorado, producing 1.4 billion eggs every year. Eggs are a source of high-quality protein and contain 13 essential vitamins and minerals, all for 70 calories per large 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.
