    The last couple days, my EE, instead of laying blue eggs, has been laying white/grayish eggs. My orpington has started to lay off colored eggs too. Do you think a vitamin deficiency of some kind? Or should I not worry?

    [​IMG] So should I look up the dieses it might indicate and see which one fits best, then look for a cure? Should I seperate the infected birds from the rest?

    They both lay light colored eggs anyway, maybe I'll post a picture of an off colored egg and one of their regular eggs.
