    Even if she is a Welsummer, she could throw a light brown egg. I had one that came from a hatchery and she laid a very light egg.

    That was my daughter on the last posts. Hazel does lay a nice brown egg (not tan or brown-"ish"). I have thought welsummer too, maybe a mix. She is my favorite hen, friendly and lays every day. I might have some more pics - I'll take a look.

    Hello fellow Georgian!! [​IMG] I have Black sex links (Black Stars) and she looks just like them. Some of mine lay light brown eggs and some lay darker brown, but she looks just like mine.

    Quote:1 in every 50 or so Black sexlink chicks 1 pullet chick will be all red and look like the one in the picture.
    I had one like that, sweetest chicken ever.
    My friend makes her own BSL and from about 60 - 70 chicks she had 2 red pullets so far.
