    I have three pullets and a cockerel. I get two brown eggs (one speckeled) and a tinted egg that is a pale purple. I have heard of tinted eggs. Do they come from a particular breed or are they just random?

    They are good layers. I don't think they have missed a day since they started. I thought laying would be irregular particularly since we set the clocks back.
