    I have 1 black JG,she lays a bigger pinkish colored egg,i dont have any orps,dont have anything to compare it too?,should be easy to tell,2 eggs should be very similar and the other different?,Also i have noticed my egg colors do change from time to time,i have Marans,red sex links,gold wyandots,and a couple of easter eggers too,I know its not much help to you,but sometimes you can catch them in the act?,that helps too.

    You'll probably never know unless you catch them in the act. Orp eggs are light brown, almost pinkish. Jerseys have a range of brown from just basic brown to almost cream.
