I found this site a couple weeks ago and I love it. I find myself going through the topics several times a day and have had quite a few of my questions answered just by reading. I do have one question that I didn't see a topic on. I am a new proud "mommy" to several new chicks. That part is going fine but, I purchased 3 hens from an auction a couple weeks ago just to have a few hens laying right now. They are (I think) Shaver Reds. They are laying fine, I get 3 eggs a day, but the eggs are not pure white. They have a grey tint to them. They taste fine they just don't look that pretty. Is this normal or is this there something I am not doing right? I feed them laying feed and they get treats like oatmeal and fresh fruit once a day. We did just finish the run last weekend but they were in the coop for about 2 weeks before they were allowed outside. We have a pretty big puppy and I didn't want the puppy to hurt them so we waited until the run was done. Any suggestions would be wonderful. Thanks a ton!
