    Hi,

    I have noticed a few reddish eggs going around. Wynette has the picture attached to her user name which has a red egg. I am keen to find out which breed lays them. Thanks for your help.

    Do you mean a deep mahogany type color?


    You might want to private message the people you see with that color egg and ask

    I can only imagine that you are referring to Marans eggs. Like the one on the upper left from my backyard
