    My hens just started laying again on friday but I'm confused...during the cold egg-less winter months we got some more hens that didn't lay either but now that they started laying we aren't sure which ones are laying so my questions are what color eggs do these hens lay?

    Black Australorps...Buff Orpingtons...Barred Rocks...RIRs...Black Japanese Bantams...and...Rouen Ducks. THANKS!! [​IMG]

    Australorps, Barred Rocks and RIR's will lay a brown egg. Buff orpingtons will lay a very light brown egg almost cream but more leaning to the brown side.
    Black Japanese Bantams will lay a really small white egg. And Rouen ducks will lay either white or green depends on the individual. i have 2 females, one lays white and the other one lays a really green egg.
