    Will egg color change for a hen? I thought my RIR hen had started laying. It was a little darker of a shade of brown than we were getting from our light brahma and wyondotte. I got 3 darker eggs and now nothing. But getting the same amount of eggs...

    Yes, egg color can change, especially when a chicken first begins laying. Older hens may also change egg color.
