I have been placing golf balls in my nest boxes, couple girls began laying in them but the others haven't started laying yet. The breeds that lay are laying brown eggs, will phony white eggs work or will they recognize the white as not their egg color? Thanks

Yup, folks use them all the time with any egg color layer. Now that some of your girls are laying the others will know where to lay so you don't really need the golf ball anymore.

Unfortunate but true: Chickens are not mental giants.

Your girls won't know the difference. All of my brown egg layers merrily laid in the box seeded with a white ping pong ball.
