    Our California White (at least thats what the feed store called her) started laying a couple days ago. I was under the impression that her eggs would be white. They are not really white. I can't decide if it has a slight brownish tint or if it's pink(i don't even know if that is possible) . I was just wondering if the eggs you get at the store are treated with something to make them so white. I'm still kind of new to this chicken thing so I'm trying to learn as much as I can.
    My son's beloved turken, Tweeter, was hit by a car last week. At that time she was our only egg layer and hers were definately brown,although they varied in shades of brown.
    I was just curious about the white.

    Also, if anyone knows of anyone in Pa that has turkens, could you please let me know. We would like to get more in the spring. I already have been in contact with nightshade and hope to get some from them.

    our chickens lay brown eggs, well shades of brown eggs, they vary by color.

    they don't list a cal. white as a white egg layer, unless they go by another name.
