    Someone told me that if a chicken lays brown eggs, it is not a real EEer. Is this true? I have (or think ) I have 2 young pullets that have not laid yet.

    EEs can lay brown, tan, "pinkish," green, blue, or blue-green. I began with six of them; only 2 of which laid green eggs. The other lay a tan or pinkish color.

    Will a hen only lay one certain color, or a variety of colors?

    Her color stays the same for life. It may get darker or lighter but stays the color she starts with.
