Pigmented egg yolks?

Having researched at length the nutrition of eggs I prefer pastured eggs with dark yolks with no antibiotics or unnatural feeds. Those I have seen here are usually smaller and various sizes. However, my usual delivering resource has just closed its doors. The replacement received today is of large, uniform eggs. The yolks are darker but my concern is as follows:

A chicken farmer here told me that pigment is used by some to produce the dark yolks. The all large, uniform, very clean eggs make me wonder which I am now getting. Does anyone have a resource near Ordonez Lasso that delivers eggs from pastured hens with dark yolks?

Please stay on subject, with no snide remarks. Thank you!
