    However I've seen different colored eggs. Like Lucy lays light brown eggs and big mouth lays a little different shade if brown. But I got some white egg the first time and haven't seen one since? I've seen dark chocolate eggs and nothing since?? My gosh


    And speaking of laying I saw my women taking dust baths today.
    But I heard one chicken don't lay different color eggs everyday. Like she won't lay a blue egg and then lay pink the next day

    Sounds like you have different hens starting to lay. They will lay eggs of a slightly different shade but not a whole different color.

    A hen will consistently lay eggs that are the same color. The shade of color may change a little bit. The egg color should not change. Maybe if a hen was sick or something the egg color might change.
