I have a flock of all cinnamon queen chickens which lay a medium color brown egg... I just added 3 new hens... all of which are solid black.. let me start off by saying the lady I got them from said they were black Marans... hmmm well the evidence says otherwise... .. Chicken #1 is a large solid black hen with green/purple sheen in the sun... ( I believe she is a Australorp) Chicken # 2 is also solid black(with purply sheen) with copper in her feathers around her head and Chicken #3 looks just like #2 only she has feathered feet. #2 and # 3 are 3/4 the size of chicken #1.. ... but I got eggs from two of them yesterday and to my surprise someone laid a white/cream egg... I think the light brown is from the Australorp (chicken#1)... but white.and its much smaller... one of the little ones has to be a mut to make a white egg....?? Chicken #3 also looks to have some bleaching on her face (maybe she is laying the little white egg? and she has some black spots on her wattles not sure what that is?) Chicken #1 Chicken #2 Chicken #3 Here are the eggs... there is my cinnamon queen and 2 others in question... which means one of the new girls is not laying yet.
