    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!

    Quote:Technically that's basically it. . . when pullets are young, all sorts of things can go wonky during their beginning of the egg laying.

    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.

    The tiny one in the center is hers.

    now all of a sudden the wierd ones. hm... dunno. maybe she ate to much snow?????
