    I lost one of my Rhode Island Reds on Monday 6/9/08 died because of the heat, I Think. We checked her out but no other signs but she was burning up.

    This last week the eggs have turned from dark brown to almost white. Why?

    HELP! Why is the egg color changing to almost a white from dark brown? Is this a danger sign? I've already lost one of this flock.

    Someone said it was due to extreme heat and they need more water. I dont think they are sick just environmental.
