My leghorn D (scared of me btw) is laying brown eggs and the other is laying white.Is it just because it started laying 2 days ago?

How brown is brown and are you sure it is a leghorn, not a white rock?

I'm no expert, there is always something to learn, and my birds are livestock, so... yes, I may be quite blunt. wink.png

I would have to say that the leghorn laying brown eggs is not a leghorn.  Not sure what breed it might be but if you post pictures I am sure someone could help you with the breed.

pics please..leghorns lay white eggs.White legs lay snow white eggs.Colored leghorns lay more of a very lightly tinted egg that will many times look white until you compare it to a white.However none lay any shade of brown...there are white chickens that lay brown eggs though...white rocks Rhode Island White and others

I'm confused here too... my leghorns are laying, I have 20 of them, and also 15 black jersey giants that are younger, only about 3.5 months old. I am getting both large white and small brown eggs. Is it possible the giants are laying already???? Ok, I know where their ears are, but where exactly is the earlobe?
