    Egg color for Rhode Island Reds

    I have owned lots of large size R.I.R. hens and they have always laid a fairly dark brown egg. I recently bought some Bantam R.I.R. for hatching and they are ivory. Are they different color or did I get ripped off?

    Rhode Island Red egg color

    My R.I.R. lay a fairly dark brown egg. However I bought some Bantam rir on ebay and they are ivory. I am wondering if I got ripped off. Should they be the same dolor.

    Dominique Thread!

    I have 3 young dominique pullets. They are fine in the house but when on the nest they are very agressive and will peck the crap out of your hand. I have 9 breeds and they are the worst.

    White Leghorn Laying

    I have 4 white leghorn pullets which I hatched. They are about 22 weeks old and 2 of them have been laying for over 2 weeks. Should I expect the other 2 to start soon or may they wait until spring?

    I found one of my White Rock hens dead this evening. She was 7 months old and had shown no sign of sickness. She was right beside the feeder.

    Who Lays the Best Eggs: Frequency, size, color. ?

    I have an interesting story. Among my hens I have 6 Red Sex-links. I bought them as chicks in April. They have been laying a large brown egg since late August. I have always kept a light on in my coop and had noticed that early in the morning the large brown eggs were there but I hardly ever...
