are white eggs always white?

Kind of a dumb question, but I found an egg today (the second ever for my hens!) which looks white compared to a normal brown egg, but ever so slightly brownish (pinkish?) when set against my white counter-top. My hens include a lakenvelder, andalusian, faverolle, EE, jersey giant, and a mixed breed something or other who looks to have some rosecomb bantam in her. Any thoughts?

no the color of eggs can vary slightly from day to day, and Cream colored eggs are very common, they look white beside brown ones until you put them beside a true white one. EE chickens can also lay various shades of pink, green, and blue. So your brownish/pinkish egg is not out of the ordinary.
