    My first chicken is a beautiful barred rock. In researching her care I discovered she is supposed to lay brown eggs. Anyone know why she lays white eggs?

    It's all genetics so could easily be a throw back.

    You must not have a Barred Rock or if you do she is confused as to what color she should be laying.

    Can you post a pic of her?
