    I recently moved one of my younger hens into the hen house with my mature hens since she is old enough to begin laying. She's been in there a few weeks and yesterday when I went to gather up the eggs, I found a beautiful light brown speckled egg. She is a Light Brahma crossed with a White Leghorn. I was wondering if anyone else has the same cross that lays a similar color.

    My light brahmas lay a light brown to pinkish egg often with lighter colored bloom speckles.
