  2. Reasonable thinking is the only reason I don't have muscovies *sigh* Zoning + RT is why I can't succumb to the lure of Calls... Still trying to figure out if I have anywhere reasonable to keep Cots.

    I have a dorking and one Trader Joes hen that lays white eggs. Usually the Trader Joes hens lay brown eggs.

    I adopted 2 white leghorn hens about a month ago. Those 2 white birds give me almost as many eggs as the other 4 that were in the group I got. They lay pretty white eggs but I still prefer my brown layers.

    Congrats! The only white layer I have is an Andalusian, my daughter has a leghorn as her only white layer. I love my little blue!

    Hi Ron, so far of the 12 eggs from TJ's all have been white. Strange. Could different stores get different breeds or just luck of draw.

    You never know! They may have changed up the roosters and they are pure leghorn.

    Do yours have spots or color on them?(the pullets not the eggs)
