It's a matter of esthetics.  Hens that run free (usually with a 
rooster)are usually fed differently from factory chickens.  When I was a 
boy on the farm, gathering the eggs was one of my duties. Those corn fed 
birds produced eggs with rich orange yolks instead of the pasty yellow 
things you buy from stores. Funny thing. I went from poor to affluent and 
now I'm gathering eggs again - with beautiful rich orange yolks.
