    I have a mixed flock of hatchery girls, all just 1yo, and all lay a light brown egg. My black sexlink lays the darkest egg, and that is still just a light/medium brown So imagine my surprise when I went out today and found this in the nest box...

    The light brown egg in the link is actually just their normal size large egg (just over 2oz). The dark brown egg is 1/2oz, that was the big surprise, that it was so small.
