    I would like to know what breed of chicken this is. I thought she was a Wyandote with slightly different plumage. However, today I found a WHITE egg in the nesting box. My other 11 hens are as follows, 2 - RIR, 2 - BA, 2 - BO, 2 - SLW, 3 - BR. All of these birds are brown egg layers. The egg is question is not a light brown, it is most definitely, WHITE.
    Thank you for your help.

    This bird is quite a mystery because of the white eggs. She has red earlobes, which should be indicative of a brown/tinted egg-layer. Without getting crazy and exotic with crossing, I cannot think of any white/columbian colored chickens that have your hen's body-shape and lays white eggs.

    It might be that she will eventually lay cream colored eggs for you, and her first attempt is off-color for her. In certain breeds, it takes a while for them to get the full color going.

    She is apparently laying brown eggs now. I am getting 9 a day from my flock of 12. All eggs are brown even though some are much lighter than others. She just forgot to color the first one she laid. Thanks for the replies.

    That's cute. [​IMG] But yes, she's definitely a Wyandotte, or a Wyandotte cross. She's beautiful!
