Well, I dont know if this is an old wives tale or not, but I find it to be true for my flock- Look at the color of the ear lobes of your hen (if she is near or at laying age) the color of the earlobes is close to what color the eggs will be. Red lobes usually mean brown eggs, white lobes= white eggs, etc.
