    Our pullets are starting to lay and we are getting a pretty dark dark brown egg. It is not as dark as say a Maran egg, but it is quite a bit darker than the br eggs.

    Our Ancona and brown leghorns lay white eggs. And my EE has started laying a pretty blue egg (with a hint of green), so it leaves my Black sex link and my new hampshire.

    My guess is goldie, my new hampshire, I would think the BSL would lay eggs similar to the br, and Goldie has started squatting. So do they lay dark eggs? I wish I had a picture. If she lays today I will try and get one.

    New Hampshire would be my guess.
