    So I think I have 3 out of 6 laying now. I have one that lays small brown eggs and one that lays large brown, speckled eggs. This morning I found a small green egg that looks almost white. You can hardly tell it is green at all....will the color deepen and become more green?

    When a hen starts laying, she will lay the darkest egg she will ever lay. As the years progress, the egg color will lighten up in most cases.

    So the sea foam green real light color will be the best it gets? Oh well, it is still a pretty egg and I love the bird either way so.....
