    "brown" eggs tend to come in a variety of shades. From a rich dark brown...to a pinkish tan. I have Golden comet hens, and a few RIR/mix hens. I get several different color variations of " browns"

    Yup - they can come in brown, dark red-brown, light pink (almost white), etc.

    I have Red Stars. In the beginning their eggs were rosy beige and soft. Then I'd get a light brown, then dark brown. This would happen til they got it together and now it's a dark rich brown.
