    The EE(easter egger) eggs will be a light blue to green shade. The RIR will lay a brown egg, the others will lay ither white or brown as well.

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    Easter Eggers can lay any color from blue through green, khaki, cream and tan. Each individual hen will lay one color throughout her life. All the others lay brown eggs.

    Google the Henderson Chicken Chart for good info on different breeds - including egg color.

    I had two silver laced wyandottes that layed a cute "pink" egg.

    Pink eggs are really just very light brown eggs . . . .

    Iv got three gold laced wyandottes and they are kinda bullies...not a big fan...I like the buff orphingtons...soft as silk..do the light Sussex lay pink eggs?
    next spring I want some of them...some Delawares ...australorphs..maybe a couple Jersey giants..
    Any other suggestions...I like docile birds...no pickaninnies
