Can anyone tell me if there is a difference in the color of eggs laid by Black Australorps and those laid by a Lavender Orp?
I have BAs both hen and roo, and am thinking of getting some lavs. The color is so beautiful!
But I am wondering if I will know whose eggs are whose when it comes to picking hatching eggs for the future. I don't want to cross the two.
Is there a marked difference in color?
Thanks in advance, for any info.

We do not raise them now, but if I remember correctly, the Lavender Orpington eggs are a slightly lighter brown color than the Australorpe eggs. Also, Orpington eggs are longer looking.
