    I have the following breeds of pullets starting to lay. Buff Orpington, Columbian Wyandotte and Barred Rock. One lays an egg which is almost white. Does anyone know what breed this might be?

    Is it white or light brown?

    My Buff Orphington lays the lightest egg that is a pinkish tone. My Barred rocks lay light brown eggs slightly darker than the BO. I pretty much stalked by pullets until I figured out who was laying what. Each one lays and egg that is as unique as they are.

    It is like an off-white. I can't see any brown but it isn't as white as a leghorn.

    My Columbian Wyandottes lay a light tan coloered egg...an off white. The egg size would be considered medium.
