    Do I am getting a couple of cream colored matte eggs..I can't be sure if it is like 2 a day or 1 a day or if that really makes much of a difference since sometimes they don't lay every day. Who is laying it? Any ideas?
    (I have RIR-which i don't think are, Barred rock-maybe?, Buff Orps, Australorps, GL Wyandotte-maybe?, 1 lt Brahma? )

    I would guess the Light Brahama or the mixed Barred Rock?

    Rocks or Wyandottes can lay a little lighter egg or a more brown egg.

    My buff Brahama lays eggs the color of a baby doll's skill porcelain....so I would vote for the Brahama

    Sometimes the BO's can have a fairly light egg too.

    I have some of the same mixed breeds, but no brahma's. I get quite a few matte cream colored eggs and sometimes a smaller shiny smooth egg.

    my hens are blk australorp/slvr wyandotte/barred rock/some gold colored hen and a red little banty w/feathery feat crosses

    My BR's eggs are very light, almost pink. Look at the hens' earlobes and see whose lobes are white or cream - earlobes indicate egg color.

    Red lobes = brown eggs
    White/cream lobes = white/cream eggs

    My Buff Orpingtons lay the lightest eggs here.
