What breed lays a red egg?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

I just saw an ad selling farm fresh eggs, including blue, green, brown and RED?  What breed lays a red egg?  I've never seen one. If you have one, post a picture!

I believe the Marans breed can lay a terra-cotta egg. But true red? None I know of.

Oh!  I wish mine would start!  She is only about 4 1/2 months, so I guess I have some more waiting!
