    Production Reds=light brown
    Marans= chocolate colored eggs

    My barred rocks lay kinda pinkish tan eggs, they are really easy to tell from my RIRS.

    Olive Eggers! Dark egg layer (Marans) x blue/green egg layer (EE or Ameraucana) = olive eggs

    Some Welsumers and some other breeds lay terracotta colored with dark brown spots. So you can add spotted eggs to your list.

    Quote:One of my Splash Plymouth Rocks lays a brown egg with purple spots some times [​IMG] I have one that puts a thick coating of bloom on the eggs and it is kinda pink and seems one did lay a purpleish one but I don't remember who it was and she does not do it anymore.

    My barnedvelder lays some very pretty terra cotta colored eggs. And I love the eggs from my Ameraucanas. Very pretty blue/green, and they are the most consistent layers so far, especially with our shorter days.
