Our first flock ever of chickens has (finally!) started laying. Until today, as far as we know, just one girl was laying. A few are starting to show signs they may be getting ready. (Making the "I LAID AN EGG!" cackle, crouching down and letting us pet them. Deep red combs.) She has laid almost the exact same size egg every day! The exception was that she was getting later and later in the day, and then skipped 1 day and switched to an AM egg. I got the egg out for today this morning. This evening I was closing up the coop and found another egg. It was smaller, a little wonky shaped, and nearly white. We are SUPPOSED to only have brown egg layers, and one easter egger. (She hasn't shown any signs of being ready to lay yet.) We have: Black Australorps (1 is laying) Barred Rock (she is cackling and crouching) Rhode Island Reds (one is cackling) White Rocks Buff Orpingtons Easter Egger I know eggs come in different shades of brown. When I put it up to a commercial egg it isn't white, but next to our other brown eggs it does look white. It is not uniform in shape (a little leathery looking in a spot, but I read on here that is normal for a new layer) Is this coloration 'normal'? Thanks!
