A little over a week ago I got some new red sex links who had already began to lay eggs. At the same time I also started lighting the coop providing 15 hours of daylight for my remaining two hens to encourage the sedentary lazy little imps to earn their keep! Well, the sex links have been laying a light brown egg with white speckles covering the shell every day, but the last two days I have been getting a variety of browns! I do not think it is possible for the egg shell color to change so one of my other chickens must have began laying too!

Any guesses as to which one?????
I would have started lighting the coop a long time ago if I knew that's all my pretty girls needed to start giving me presents!!!!!!

I think my black chicken may be the one laying the egg? The EE is pretty red in the face too though.

The egg in the front left is the one that looks different.

Does your EE have a single comb or a pea comb?

Otherwise the one on the left could be anyone's. It is a nice pink shade, meaning there's extra blume on it, and even the girls with white specks on theirs can do that.

She has a pea comb. Her tail looks funny due to the dog playing a little too rough and pulling out a few feathers.

Quote:
Comb color has nothing to do with egg color , but they generally get more red as they approach point of lay and can sometimes indicate which pullet is laying . The gene for pea combs is close to the one for blue/green eggs ; if an EE has a single comb it is not as likely to have inherited the one for blue/green eggs .......... but that's not written in stone .
