What an experience!
For years, Mitzi and I raised our own chickens. We raised some for meat, but we raised them mostly for the eggs. You really can’t beat fresh chicken or eggs. The egg yolk color would be determined by the chicken’s diet. If it was winter, and we had to supplement the chicken’s food, the yolk would be more yellow than the summer when the chickens got out of the coop everyday to eat grass, bugs, etc... In the summer, the yolk was pretty much orange.
