    What color eggs do RIR's and BO's lay? I have some 14 week old pullets.

    Quote:I think they lay brown eggs, with the RIR eggs probably being darker than the BO eggs.

    My Buffs lay eggs anywhere from a light brown to a medium brown egg. Hard to tell from most other brown egg layers

    My RIR lay a medium brown egg. I have one girl who lays eggs with purplish specks mixed in.

    My bantam RIR lays a big egg compared to the other bantams I have. It's cream coloured.
