In the Brooder
- Oct 3, 2012
I've been getting eggs from my chickens born in March since August. I'd only ever gotten medium brown eggs/some a little lighter brown until my one Ameracauna hen started laying a few weeks ago. I normally do the chicken chores so I see first hand what eggs I got from which box, etc. However, my husband collected the eggs last night. He collected the blue egg and a white egg. We also have a few ducks that lay white eggs but always lay on the ground, can't possibly get to the chicken nesting boxes. However, the chickens occasionally lay down in the straw where the ducks lay. He swears this white egg, which is about the same size as the blue egg, came from the nesting boxes. Here are the breeds of hens I have....none of which lay white eggs as far as I know: Australop, Jersey Giant, Buff Orphington, Ameracauna, Light Brahama, Bantam Conchin, Plymouth Rock. Am I wrong and one of these lays white eggs?
