    I just got my first egg! It was from my buff orpington hen and it was a light cream color to a bage. Is this a normal color for a buff or should it be dArker?:D:D:lol:

    Congratulations on your first egg! [​IMG]

    A cream colored egg is quite normal.

    I just got mine a few days ago. I am not sure who it came from but it was in some leaves near one of my woodpiles. My chickens are 22 weeks old.
