    Hi! I gave a rather "odd" question. I have ten hens. Four if them are laying. My silkie who lays a cream egg, my two Easter Eggers who both lay a green egg but one is a bit more bluish then the other, and a buff orpington (That's what she resembles.... I've done much research on the breed.) And she lays a beautiful brown egg. I have six other hens. They are 15 weeks old. Four Rhode Island Reds and two Leghorns. No one looks ready to lay, so I have counted them out. Why is my BO's egg color changing?

    This is supposedly laid by the same hen :/ Here is a picture of her.

    They don't look like eggs from the same chicken to me.

    That's what I was thinking... I just didn't think that one of my RIRs would be laying yet....

    Do you guys want me to post pics if the RIRs so maybe we can narrow this down to who possibly did it?
