Speckled egg in the hen house

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I recently moved one of my younger hens into the hen house with my mature hens since she is old enough to begin laying. She's been in there a few weeks and yesterday when I went to gather up the eggs, I found a beautiful light brown speckled egg. She is a Light Brahma crossed with a White Leghorn. I was wondering if anyone else has the same cross that lays a similar color.

My light brahmas lay a light brown to pinkish egg often with lighter colored bloom speckles.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
