    i went to let them out today and collect eggs.
    i had a white egg in the nest and we only have
    brown layers. so does this mean something is
    wrong with her?

    Are you sure someone's not playing a trick on you?

    How long have they been laying? You must have one in the mix that's not what it's supposed to be. ????[​IMG]

    from what i heard protein can be the cause also , i have brown egg layers and i get a white egg every now and then , but i think its because the white egg is the duck egg
