    Why would my RIR hen start to lay off white eggs when her first ten or so were dark likr the other RIR hens?

    The color of the eggs from one chicken can vary. We have only brown egg layers but got one yesterday that was almost white.

    My olive egger sometimes lays bright green, sometimes muddy brown/green, but mostly olive, my brown eggers vary in shade. The Barred rock sometime lays spotted eggs. My thought is it is something to with their diet and completely normal. All my birds free range.
