    I purchased 2 White Leghorn hens at Tractors Supply this spring (was in the store and could not resist)[​IMG]. They started laying this week and I am getting small/medium light brown eggs? Was expecting large white eggs. They look like White Leghorns, but now I am not so sure what they are. Anyone else experience a problem like this?

    Maybe they are White Plymouth Rocks. Mine lays a light brown egg.
