    I got a cream colored egg the other day and each day since.... any chance easter eggers start putting out cream and then go to colored egg production?

    Its either that or
    (A) They will always be cream colored or
    (B) my buff orp is older than I thought?

    I am pretty sure that an EE can also lay cream colored eggs & if that is what they start laying that's what they will continue to lay.

    I had an EE that laid a very light tan to cream colored egg. If that's what she laid, that's what you'll get.

    Personally, I would not mind a hen that layed cream colored eggs. Just another pretty color to add to my basket.
