I have black sex-link hens, 1 banty (looks like a blue Del, cross.) and 2 of the full size versions. and one what i thought was a white leghorn cross. I have no idea what the crosses are because the crosses We got from an amish guy that did not know exactly what they were. Since I have been doing my expiriment with black pepper, I have been getting 3 brown eggs, 1 cream colored one, and 1 white egg per day. we were getting one white egg about every other day even before the expiriment. I was certain that the white leghorn cross was laying the white egg. But today I was in the coop when she laid her egg, and with my own 2 eyes i watched her lay a brown egg! The del crosses are not of laying age so I was certain that she was the white egg layer. Now that all went out the window. Is it possible that cross she is crossed in a way that will make her lay both brown and white eggs? Or could the peppe do it? Im tottally confuzzled now. please help.
