    They are lovely brown eggs. By the look of it a light brown and dark. Eggs look a good size to what breeds do you have?

    The larger light brown egg is from my 2 year old golden sex link. She is amazing, lays beautiful jumbo eggs on the regular and barely skips a day.
    The darker eggs are a new addition from my French Black Copper Marans pullet who is about 26-28 weeks now.

    Those are lovely brown eggs, but the others are also lovely dark brown eggs.

    The reason the other hen is laying good,large light brown eggs is because she is a red sexlink,she was bred to do so.
