    Our EE, Lady, just laid her first egg today. It was the palest blue. It almost looks white unless its next to something white for comparison. Will her egg color get any more blue or is this first egg an indicator of how all her eggs will be? Our BSL's first 7 eggs have all been identical shades of pale pinkish brown.

    My girls lay brown eggs but one lays eggs with a pale brown shell. its probably because you need oyster shell or calcium for the egg shell.

    My 8 hens lay eggs of varied shades of brown. Rarely, I get one that is white. They provide speckles at times.
