    Hello everyone. Ive been raisinh chickens for about 10 years now. I have rhode islands, barred rocks and buff orpingtons. Can you tell me if the orpingtons lay green eggs?

    Welcome to BYC!
    Orpingtons do not lay green eggs. Are you looking for a green egg layer or are you getting green eggs and trying to determine which bird(s) in your current flock are laying them?

    Yesterday i got a green egg. I know my rhode islands dont lay green. I thought my barred rocks didnt either thats why i thought maybe my buff orpingtons might. Strange

    I'd like to know the answer too. Can you put up a photo of your buff orpington so we can advise if it is another breed?

    Looking forward to seeing your pictures. Australorps don't lay green eggs either. Is it possible someone played a practical joke on you?
