    I have a mille fluer d'uccle and a red pyle oegb and am wondering what color eggs they lay. They are my only two bantams and we got an egg about two weeks ago and then another today. The two eggs are a light cream/tinted. So just wondering so I know which one is laying!

    My Duccle lays a creamy light beige colored egg. She just started last week.

    Im not sure about the OEGB.

    Both should lay light brown eggs. If you have an OEGB that lays white eggs, sorry to say, you don't have an OEGB.

    Thanks for everyones replies! So I guess I will have to catch them in the act to see which one it is or both maybe. They are both just the sweetest girls and I'm hoping to hatch some eggs from them next year!
