    Hi everyone!
    It's been a while since I was on this site.
    Been too long since I posted something.

    I also have a couple of RIR chickens, and I'm expecting more in a few weeks. Yay! :)



    Okay, I have a curious question.

    Is true that when a brown egg differs in hue from other brown eggs, it means it came from a different hen?

    Silly question, I know. :p

    Hi, I'm a newbie too[​IMG]

    And to answer your question, not necessarily. It's normal for egg color to vary a bit. It is at the beginning of their cycle that the eggs will be the darkest or most concentrated color, and as time goes on it will lighten.

    Thanks!

    A total of ten baby chicks are coming in the mail.
    Here's hoping I can take care of the new babies along with the three existing juveniles I have. @[email protected]
