Hi everyone, I looked to see if someone posted something like this already, but I couldn't find anything. Probable because I don't know how to call this. Therefor I call it my Michael Jackson eggs. We got new red laying hens in June when they were 16 weeks old. They starting laying quite quick after. After a while a X amount of eggs started off quite brown, but when I washed them, the turned between 1 and 10 shades lighter. My question is, how come? And what can I do about it. It gives me quite a bit of extra work to get it all off and if I leave it, people will not want them. The food their getting is crushed screening with all sorts of grains in them, mixed with laying hen food and ground flax. Anyone an idea why this happens?
