No; onions do not affect the avor of the eggs. Onions have been fed for weeks at a time along with other food, with no taint perceptible in the eggs. It would be just as rea sonable to say that chicks hatched from eggs laid by onion eating hens would smell and taste of the onion! A difference in food no doubt affects the color of the yolk; the eggs from hens fed on corn have a deeper and richer colored yolk than the eggs of hens fed strictly on nitrogenous foods. Fowls that have free range eat everything that a crow will eat. And yet their eggs do not taste of garbage or carrion. Onions are a healthful food for fowls, often better than medicine.
