    Are you sure its white or a very light tan? I have some eggs that I think are white until I put them next to a true white egg. Hope you figure out your mystery!

    LOL I have a bunch of Comets and have found that as they get older their eggs get lighter and lighter.... I only get ONE truely brown egg per few days!
     
  10. paint sprayer... you funny gal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ok, it's the fourth off white egg now. it MUST be May, my rescue. I dont think she was laying then a week or so ago I watched her get into the nest and plop out this tiny tiny little specked egg. thought maybe it was her first or her last.
