In the Brooder
May 8, 2017
Hey guys! Just joined, but I have a question. My Americana (Duchess) normally lays light blue eggs, but today I found one that I assume is hers, same shape as the others, same size, but it was a whitish-cream colored egg. Is this some kind of problem in pigmentation? Thanks!
Sometimes the pigment changes, and it's usually nothing to worry about. Eggs lighten up over the season and there's often an odd colored one occasionally.

Birds that lay green or blue eggs use a component of their blood called bilirubin to produce the color. It's said to be biologically taxing to them.
