    I have 5 hens, all were purchased as day old chicks at in April. 3 began laying one month ago. A Red sex link with dark brown eggs, a White Leghorn with nice white eggs, and a Buff Orpington with smaller light brown eggs.
    Today i had 4 eggs in the nest box and the new egg is on the far right and is the smaller cream colored egg. It is either from my easter Egger that was sold at the feed mill as an Aurachunna or from my Barred rock? What is your Guess?

    I have two EE's. One lays a light blue egg and the other lays one just like that. I think it's supposed to be "pink" but it looks really light brown to me.

    I would hold out for your EE my two lay the ugliest green eggs you will ever see! LOL I got them from a local flea market. I love them as hens, but as layers they are less than to be desired for. [​IMG]

    So it is confirmed! My EE is giving those cream colred eggs. Saw her in the nest box then saw the egg!
