    I have on RIR and one EE who I dont think lay often if at all. Ive been getting 2 blue/green eggs from the other 2 EE's and a dark brown eggs from the RIR. Then there is this pinkish brown egg I get occasionally. Do you think its the RIR or the EE? I got the EE's at the same time and they all look alike but that doesnt matter right?

    My EE lays light brown eggs. Not all EE lay green/blue eggs. You will not know what you will get until you actually see the egg.

    What makes me wonder is its kind of pinkish light brown and a little smaller. Its hard to see in the photo.

    It could be either. Check out my BYC page and I have some pictures of RIR eggs.

    I have 2 RIR and one lays a dark brown and one lays a light brown just like in your picture. The dark brown will sometimes have speckles. the light brown will vary sometimes in shades. My EE always lay light blue eggs.[​IMG]
