    I've seen some pictures of eggs that appear quite pink and have heard mention of folks having them. What breeds tend to produce eggs that are lean toward pink?

    Once we get moved and settled I want to get some EE's for the grandkids and I'm sure the 4 year old twin girls would LOVE the pink ones.

    Thanks in advance.
