    Are you positive the brown eggs came from different birds? They look the same...

    Congrats on the egg! [​IMG]

    Quote:The do don't they!! We actually got the big brown egg from a friend of ours who has been keeping us in stock of farm eggs until ours begin laying. All he has (with the exception of his roo) are RIR. So I am sure [​IMG] the pic doesn't show it but they are actually lighter in color.

    Thanks everyone!! We were thrilled HA HA
