    more of a creamy color? Henderson's chicken chart says white.

    I'm trying to sort out the eggs from my new layers to figure out who is laying what. I have a rather large pullet egg from one of this years pullets that is almost white, but not quite.

    If minorcas lay a true white egg than my pullet is now 6 months old and not laying yet. [​IMG]

    Buff Catalanas lay a tinted egg. All other mediterranean breeds lay white eggs.
