My BR just started laying, and her eggs are white. I'm just a bit shocked,I know there are a few breeds that don't follow the red ears=colored eggs, white ears=white eggs rule. However barred rocks shouldn't be in that category, right? It's pretty neat! Does anyone know how this could happen? As a new layer I thought maybe she just didn't have pigment ready, but so far only white eggs!

If they are really white and not cream then she's a barred Holland instead of a Rock.

Is it really white, or is it maybe cream? I have had super pale layers that you would think laid white eggs until you compare it to a truly white egg.
I looked it up, some mixed BR will have very light eggs, I compared hers to a store bought, it's really similar in color, nearly identical! I don't know if my eyes can tell the difference.
