    I dont know..I've had them slightly change, but not that much...I'd be curious if it's permanent or temporary too...

    It's nothing to worry about. You'll see many variations in egg color from the same hen. My "brown" egg layers lay anything from near white to pink to dark brown.

    My Gold Star did this recently too. She went from a medium brown to almost white over night but then her eggs have slowly changed back to dark brown. It's taken about 4 weeks to get them back to their original color. Nothing to worry about! She is just fine and so are the eggs [​IMG]
