    I like the eggs best from my Golden Comet.

    She lays full, medium brown, big eggs.

    For such a little chicken, she does a great job!

    My Australorp lays a pale brown egg with purple specks! Ever since this fall's moult. At first I was worried it was BluKote off another hen, but I caught her at it and the eggs are Shadow's.
