She's only about a year old and first started laying last summer. She hasnt molted yet. Btw...since posting I'm now pretty sure it is my copper Maran doing this.How old is the hen? Has she molted? Hens will sometimes run out of the "spray paint" that gives the brown color to the eggs at the end of their cycle. If she's gonna molt, she should go back to her regular darker color.
