Chicken eggs pale??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Ok so I have 18 week old warrens (4 of them) and their eggs are a bit pale. I noticed this 3 days ago (when I got them). I was just wondering if it is safe and normal.

Hi and welcome to BYC - glad that you have joined us.

 

The colour of egg yolks vary ostensibly with diet but there's nothing wrong with them! It may be that wherever you bought them from did not free range or add anything other than feed to their diet. If you do let them out to eat whatever they like, you may well find that the colour of the  yolks will deepen a little.

 

All the best
