Hello everyone! So one of my Plymouth's laid a white egg, is this common or?
I see a light cream egg, a brown egg and a green egg - no white eggs.
My ladies lay different shades of brown eggs - sometimes so light it could pass for an off-white. I am not sure if it holds any truth to it but it feels like I see different shades with the changes in the season.
But I would agree that it is a light brown egg.
One of my Rhode Island Reds, least she's sposed to be a RIR, lays a white egg. Not off white or light brown but WHITE.
I will get a better pic in actual light. But no, it is white. Like the ones you buy at the store.
Yes im going to take a better picture cause this is by no means anything but white.. LOL.
Is your hen a Barred Rock?
It certainly has that round on each end Plymouth Rock characteristic but also much of it's Leghorn ancestry (being hatchery stock) shell pigment. When I had hatchery stock the color ranged from pinkish to light brown between the Plymouth Rock hatchery birds.
California Greys look very similar to barred rocks, but lay white eggs. Does she seem to be just a little smaller than the average Barred Rock?
She will still be a very good layer since California Greys were created by crossing Barred Rocks with Leghorns.
