    I know leghorns are supposed to lay white eggs however i have one that lays very light brown eggs... kinda a khaki color. Why is that? I got her from tsc last year but she just started laying a couple weeks ago.

    You got a picture? Does this hen look like the rest---comb size and All. Leghorns in my experience lay white eggs----unless they are crossed/mixed.

    She looks identical to the other leghorn I have. I will get a pic of the egg and her for you tomorrow.
