    It didn't hit me when I was buying chicks, that we like to color Easter eggs and the thought of having to buy eggs next Easter when I have hens is discouraging lol. I'm new to chickens and am still awaiting my first egg. I have a black australorp, a handful of red sex links, a few leghorns and a couple of sliver laced wyandottes... do any of these lay white eggs?

    also the "ear" patch color will generally indicate egg color too (except for a few exceptions) for whites and browns
