Yes, what they eat can affect the taste of the eggs. I am sure there are threads on this subject somewhere in the Coop. Or search the Net for a list of ingredients and their effect on egg taste. If eggs taste fishy, this can be an inherited trait to steer away from. It is inherited, I don't know if the fishy taste can also be caused by what they eat.
