    I have a bantam seabright and I read that they lay cream or tinted color eggs. What is tinted?

    I have Sebrights and I would call them white. Some may say they are a tad off white.

    They lay a lightly tinted egg meaning slightly off white.

    thanks! That will be nice as none of the other chickens lay white or off white eggs!

    Here is a picture for you. The Sebright egg is the white one on top and the smaller one below is and Old English Bantam egg which is the whitest egg I had available for comparison of color. It will also give you an idea of the size too. Hope this helps.

    I have two golden Seabrights hens and an OEGB hen, I actually can't really tell a difference between the two different eggs. Pretty close in color and also in size.

    I have a silkie/sebright mix and she's laying me beautiful light green eggs daily i'm very confused because I know for a fact her mother was a gold-laced sebright and her father was a rare standard sized silkie. She has the black skin and extra toe and everything, but she is a wonderful consistent layer and has these beautiful little eggs.
