    My Buff Orpintons started laying today. I brought in two eggs. I thought the shell color was supposed to be brown, But they are a tan/green.
    Are my chickens weird?

    I have three Orps and a sex-link weirdo that was supposed to be an Orp. Anyhoot, the three ops lay very light tan to almost white eggs. The weirdo lays dark brown, almost round eggs. [​IMG]

    I discovered today that it is not my Buff Orpingtons laying those green eggs, although they are six months old and should start laying any day soon, but it is my little whitey I call Spot. She is six weeks younger than the Buffys, of a Heintz 56 variety. That is really weird, a little white hen, and I mean little, with black legs, who gives me olive green eggs. I caught her in the act today.

    Ok, we'll go easy on you since you are new, but around here, if you ask questions about color or breed, you MUST post pics!!! Otherwise we get a little 'testy' [​IMG]
    And we just really, really like pictures!!

    Maybe a Silkie Bantam? I dunno - I'm jealous~ wish I had green eggs. They are so pretty! We have some pink, just the pullet eggs and then plain ol brown.

    Try the link above - it gives you pictures of the chickens when you click on the name. The green eggs are listed as tinted. You may have already tried it... just a thought! [​IMG]
