Just started the Paleo diet with my daughter but would like to know which is better to eat? Omega 3 eggs or pastured ones? Where do I get pastured ones? We are new to this.

Omega-3 eggs are a good step from conventional store bought eggs. They're not perfect, but certainly very good.
Don't get hung up on the grass-fed/pastured BS too much, you can find some really awesome backyard chicken eggs for $2-3 a dozen versus the $6-8 you'll get ripped off for pastured eggs.

Pastured is the way to go. But, true grassfed birds aren't easy to find -- http://www.cornucopia.org/organic-egg-scorecard/
The best would probably be pastured free-range with an omega-rich diet. Something like http://www.grassfedtraditions.com/organic_soy_free_eggs.htm, (though, I'm not sure how natural it is for chickens to eat so much fish and coconut.) I'm looking forward to splurging and picking up a case soon.
I've gotten soy-free omega-3 organic eggs from whole foods a few times, but, they didn't crack / look / taste quite right (brittle, not very bright, and kind of soapy.) I've been liking these eggs http://thehappyeggco.com/ (nice and orange and full of flavor), though, meeting your local farmers would obviously be much better.
