My 15 Buff Orpington pullets have just started laying eggs this month. Suddenly their beautiful shiny golden feathers seem much duller and without any shiny gold anymore. The rooster (same age) is still very shiny and brilliant looking (see his pic in my logo at left). Is there some kind of connection between color, shiny-ness and egg-laying? Is the egg taking away something from the hen that I can replace? Is it a deficiency or something I don't need to worry about? Thanks for any help!
