    Check out what my black cochin left me in the nest box today. It looks like a paint roller went around the middle...

    I make Easter eggs like that.

    Umm, not the same way the hen does. [​IMG]

    I have some Bovan Browns that have eggs just like that. My neighbor got some of the BBs at the same time and their eggs are striped too.

    I haven't heard of Bovan Browns. I'll have to look them up! The hen is just about a year old. She just finished her molt and started laying again a few weeks ago. Maybe the "paint roller" is still getting back up to speed!

    I alway wonder why that happens. Ran out of paint?

    [​IMG] That's too cool! At least it's still brown, and not trying to change color!
