    Can someone tell me what I may have. Three hatched out of a light pink egg and the other three from a brown egg. Number 7, my green egg never hatched and bled out inside the shell :(. MY only EE.

    Where did you get the eggs? It they are probably either: Barred Rocks, Black sex-links, Black Australorps, Cuckoo Marans, or Dominiques.

    Coworker gave me eggs but he has no idea who layed what eggs. He has 15 different breeds but only one rooster, who is a leghorn.

    If they hatch from a particular color egg, is that the color the chicken will lay (if they are hens)?

    If he has different breeds they are mixed breeds, I believe e since the rooster is a Leghorn they have a chance of laying white eggs and the egg color the were hatched from.
