    I am going to add some chickens to the flock this spring. Is there a chart with pics that shows what breed lays what color? I have brown cream white and green I want dark brown and speckeled.

    google Henderson's chicken breed chart. It shows what color eggs, how productive at laying, and general disposition.

    Sometimes Wellsummers lay speckled brown eggs, one of mine does. Don't know how you could know that before pol though.

    Some of my gold comets lay speckled eggs.

    My Black stars lay almost white eggs for some reason, like a coffee with too much cream in it. I'll try to post pics, they're actually quite pretty

    I was given a chicken farm a month ago and am doing my best to figure out what breeds I have.

    Thank you so much!
