    I have one that lays a light pinkish egg with a dark brown end every day. They look so odd.

    Quote:When our girl, a Golden Comet, first started laying, one of her eggs was completely white (she lays brown eggs) with a watercolor-like brown on one end. She pecked it...almost like she knew it was no good and didn't pass her "quality control."

    LOL.... it is odd when they do that! I had one yesterday that was light tan w/dark streaks (long ways). I sometimes get ones that look almost striped (around) . Sometimes I think they are practicing for Easter!
