    Im sure this has been asked a thousands times before BUT can eggs change from white to light/ brown? I have 4 laying hens and 1 of them used to very regularly lay white eggs. Either shes not laying and im not picking up eggs often enough or her eggs have turned brown just like the other girls. Is that even possible? If anyone has any info on this that would be great!

    egg coloring is genetic... brown eggs can get lighter over the laying life of the hen, but white egg layers will always lay white eggs. This time of year, she might be taking a break.
