    I have all brown egg laying chickens (BO, BR, BA, RIR, Speckeled Sussex, red laces wyandotte,) and 3 Easter eggers... But when I opened my beating boxes I found a white egg!! 4 Browns, a blue, and a white!! So which of my chickens could have produced a white egg??

    If you post pictures of your flock, we might be able to identify which bird is laying the white egg. Generally, a bird with white earlobes will lay white eggs.

    Here is a pick of my other 2 roosters. They are about the same age and I was told they were a hybrid. They are very dominate so I figure the leghorn was just a bit of a late bloomer. I also have a BR roo that is sweet and docile and the same age...

    This is a pullet. Males have a different color pattern.

    Your Leghorn has a rosey breast. That is a sure sign of female. Males have solid black breasts and dark red on their shoulders/wings.

    After googling it, I am concluding my rooster is actually a hen... That's so funny this whole time we though she was just a late blooming rooster! Excited to have a little white egg layer in our flock!!
