    I have eight pullets that I bought as day old chicks from My Pet Chicken at the end of August. I've got:
    2-EE's
    2-Buckeyes
    2-Barred Rocks
    1-Delaware
    1-Blue Andalusian

    Of these, only the Blue Andalusian is supposed to lay white eggs. Every day for the past eight days there has been a small (but gradually getting bigger) white egg in the coop. I've also found three brown eggs, so at least one other pullet is laying.
    Everything I read about chickens prior to getting mine described Andalusians as 'good' or 'moderate' layers, in the 160 eggs per year range, so I'm a little bit surprised by the fact that she has yet to miss a day. I'm starting to wonder if one of the girls who isn't 'supposed' to lay white is laying white. Or is it more likely that I've got a early overachiver?

    the EE could lay a very light brown/pinkish egg or a very light green/blue egg. If the egg really is white- it is probably from the Andalusian. The lay well here!
