    WOOT!!! My first egg from my pullets!!!
    It's about an inch and a half long, very light brown (Almost white), and I don't know who laid it.
    I have mostly brown egg layers (Buff Orps, Barred Rocks, a Red Star, etc.), a white egg layer (White Leghorn), about 10 mutts, and 3 Easter Eggers.
    I'm thinking it was from one of the mutts or one of the EEs. What's your guess?

    I think my BOs and BRs lay darker than that, though the BOs are pretty light brown, unless the camera is bleaching the eggs color somewhat.

    I have some White Leghorn x RIR crosses that lay very very light brown/more like off white, what are the possible crosses??

    I'll throw another possibility into the mix. One of my EEs began by laying pale, kind of pinkish, thin shelled eggs. When she finally got it together, the eggs were bluish green. I think the final coat just hadn't been put on in the egg factory. Don't know if this is the case with yours. [​IMG]

    Is anyone acting different? One should be dark red in the face. Or are all your girls looking ready to lay? I knew my 1st pullet was going to lay by her face.

    Quote:They all have red faces, they're all acting odd.

    Quote:Nope, that's the actual color there.

    I don't know the breeds that are mixed up in my mutts.
