I have 4 EE hens and 1 Black Java hen. 1 EE has been laying small, light green eggs since January. 1 started laying long green eggs with some white flecks just three days ago. Today, we got a small light green egg, and TWO smallish brown ones. Then later today a big darker green egg. Sooooo, did my Black Java (which I was told would lay brown) lay two eggs, or did one of my EEs lay a brown one? Also, could the same hen lay darker, solid eggs and some flecked with white? And I didn't know that these brown eggs would darken a little... This was this morning: And this was the same haul this afternoon, including a flecked egg from yesterday (far left), and the solid green one we got this afternoon (far right): Maybe starting to lay eggs is a group thing for my girls -- they all used the same corner of a long nesting box, anyway!
