Can a hen lay different color eggs? We have adopted 8 different hens from various people, and thought we knew the breeds. 2 easter eggers , a black star, a buff orpington, 2 red stars and most recently 2 cuckoo marans. So where did yesterday's little white egg come from????? Our youngest easter egger has only laid one egg - a small but very blue one. The older EE is molting but has given us 2 grey green large eggs. The only 2 unknowns are the young "red star" and "cuckoo maran". Are there any white egg layers that look like either of these breeds? Or could one of the EEs be laying different color eggs? It does look like a first egg. Any ideas? I will try to post pictures soon. Thanks.
