    Good Afternoon to you all!

    Today, my daughter came running in shock to show me that one of our gals laid a completely white egg. We have 3 Buff Orps and 3 Barred Rocks. They're 2 years old. They always lay brown to a light tan color egg. Is there something wrong?

    We got a white one the other day. 9 hens usually laying varying shades of brown. I guess white is a very light shade of brown.
