    My Orp and my BR both lay brown eggs. I can tell them apart because the Orp's egg is more of a pink brown and the BR's egg, I would call a more yellow brown. But even with a slight pinkish cast it's no where near the color of yours. Therefore, my post is totally not helpful. [​IMG]

    I think you could have an EE hen in the mix that lays that egg.

    Yep, one of our Australorps lays one the same color.
