    My second coop finally had a brown egg today . Although idk if it is from my 6 big birds or my bantam light brahma. Does anyone have pics of eggs from bantam light brahmas i could compare to ?

    I don't have a pic, but I do have standard sized Buff Brahmas. Their eggs are a very pale brown. And they're on the small size, for such a big bird. A friend who has Light Brahmas told me that in the second year the eggs do get bigger.

    Anyhow, maybe the bantam sized brahmas lay the same colored egg as the large fowl.
