    I found an egg in my coop this morning and i'm not sure who layed it. I think it was my little Amber Lilly because she should be coming into lay very soon. Anyhow it's a very light brown/ivory colour with brown spots, its a large egg and shes quite a small bird. If its not her it has to be a RIR but ive never seen brown spots on their eggs before, unless one my light sussex is laying early. Still pretty new to the chicken thing. Thanks peeps

    yes, an Amber Star does lay brown eggs. The exact shade and whether it has speckles or not is down to the individual bird.

    We have 6 ambers. They are 1 1/2 years old now and I doubt they've hit 4 pounds. They routinely lay 3 oz. eggs and one hit 4 oz. I don't understand these ginormous eggs coming from those tiny bodies. They are funny and sweet birds.
    Here's what we get (all the brown eggs are from them):

    what is an Amber Star? I have a Gold Star; is that the same thing? Is yours a bantam version?
