    I have many different breeds, no one older then 8 months..most 5-6 months old

    Out of these breeds is their one that may have laid the pinkish egg I found yesterday? Obviously a few I have I know what they lay and listed the colors I have seen with my own eyes, that I know laid them...

    Breeds and who I know for sure are laying

    Black copper maran- I don't think has started laying/ cause no dark egg at all
    Silkies
    Amerecauna - blue egg layer
    Bantam amerecauna - blue egg layers
    Serema
    Favorelle
    Buff Orpington
    Red star- beige egg layer
    Barnvelers- slightly speckled beige

    Who do u think ? May have laid the pink egg???

    Now I have found 6 tiny blue eggs.. That would have to be the bantam amerecauna right? Or do standards- lay first but their egg size is small? For amerecaunas..cause the blue eggs iam finding are small...

    Do the eggs get larger as the chickens get older? Or have been laying longer?etc

    Our black star layed a pink egg. It was the largest egg too, averaging 80 grams. Egg size will get larger with age though range all over the place in first few months of laying.

    The only one of my birds that lays an egg that appears pink is my Buff Orpington, Nugget.
