    I have always been under the impression that I purchased the following breeds.
    One Rhode Island White
    One Red Sex Link
    One EE

    I found my first 2 eggs this morning and both of them are white?? Not brown or blue... but white? According to the breed section on this site all of my breeds lay brown with the exception of the EE? My supposive Rhode Island White looks very different from the pics of the Rhode Island White's here. I can post pics soon. Any thoughts????

    I would guess that one of the chickens isn't really a the breed you think! Post pics of each of your chickens in the "What breed or gender is this?" section for more answers on what breeds you have!

    You sure they are white? A lot of brown egg breeds look more like a pinky tan color.

    It's possible though that your EE lays a light green egg so light it looks white.

    My first brown egg was so light that I thought it was white, but when I looked at it in the house I seen it was just barely darker than my white eggs.
