    My chickens just started laying eggs today! Woo Hoo! I got 3 white eggs from all brown layers? Is this normal?

    Thanks,
    Mary

    Congrats on your first eggs! Yeah, strange happenings with eggs are normal, especially in new layers.

    I have Black Star, New Hampshire Red, Buff Orpinton, Black Alstrops and White Rocks. I know that one of the White Rocks is Laying, and all the eggs look the same. I have 13 hens, and I think one of them is doing all the work! But I now have 6 eggs, all white. hummmmm
