Do only EE's lay pink eggs ? Or any other breed they lays pink?
EEs are suppose to lay blue/green eggs, but some of the ones from the hatchery lay "pink" eggs. I have a RIR that lays pink eggs...it's just a pink colored film over the brown.
A lot is in the eye of the beholder.. whats pink to me, might be brown to someone else.
I have 3 EE's - one of them lays a pinkish egg. I also have a BO that lay's a darker purplish egg.
barred rocks usually lay a pinkish egg
I have a Delaware that lays a pale brown egg with a pinkish tint over it that comes off looking pink or lavender.
I have a Dominique laying a very lt. brn. egg that I think looks pinkish.
My mille fleur bantam cochins lay eggs with a distinct pinkish cast to them. Oddly enough, my mottled cochins don't.
pink= brown to me
Technically the egg is not pink. I have learned that there are only three colors of eggs, white, brown and blue. Some say that the brown is not an actual shell color, but a pigment added to the outside of the egg, that is why the inside is not brown. That makes sense. Everything else is a mixture of those colors. And if you think about it, it is true. But I think an EE can lay any color egg. B/c they are not a true breed, anything can come out.
