It varies somewhat...most Buff's lay a lighter tan which can have some pink tones.

 

Here is an egg chart that is helpful, pulled from http://www.wilco.coop/farm-stores/chicks-poultry/

 

assorted eggs from common chicken breeds

Buff Orpington eggs. The 3 lighter ones come from Gwen, and the darker rose ones come from Sunshine. Both sweet and nearly identical BO girls, lay totally different tinted eggs.
