Is there a particular distinction between the egg color of these two hens. I have one of each. The Australorp, I know, has begun laying because I've seen her on the nest and gathered eggs that are a very different color from my other hens. The Gold Laced Wyandotte, I don't believe has started laying. However, in researching egg color, I've found that their eggs are almost identical in color. Both hens were hatched in April. I haven't seen the Wyandotte on a nest yet but she certainlly ought to be laying by now. Just curious if anyone knows a distinction in egg color.
