    I have several brown egg laying hens and my rooster is a white egg breed so if I hatch these eggs what color eggs will the chicks lay when they start laying? Lighter brown or white and both?
    Thanks Bertie

    Its hard to say about the egg color. Probably a light, light brown.
    I have some mutts that are a little bit of everything. They lay anywhere from a good brown to an off-white. [​IMG]

    That should help make it as clear as Mud for you. [​IMG]
