    I would guess that the BR is laying the pinkish one, the medium one is the RIR and the darkest is the BSL.

    I had an EE that laid a brown egg. Their color range is varied. She might be laying the "pink" egg in middle. Isn't it fun trying to match the eggs with the hens?!?!?

    Pinkish one BR, but my Production Red lays ones just like the dark one on the right.
