    I have two barred rocks, 4 red stars, 1 columbian wyandotte, 1 black australorp. Ba seems too young. 3 red stars and one barred rock are squatting. Cw combs super red. This is the second egg I have gotten. I thought it was a red star egg but I am not sure. It has a lovely white speckles bloom and the egg really has a pink tint to it-almost a little purple pink. First egg weighed 61g second 63. Here it is alone and compared to my friends farm fresh eggs(red and black sexlinks-mine on right). Ideas? Thanks!

    I'd guess red star or maybe the one with the reddest comb
    .....61 grams is huge for a first egg, is it a double yolker?

    Got another weighing 55g but same exact shade and a red star feather stuck to it so I think u r right-I just didn't expect the red star eggs to have such a pink hue!
