    Quote:RIR = Brown
    BO = Brown
    BA = no idea
    EE = blue, green, pinkish, or brown.

    They should all lay brown eggs except the easter eggers. They could lay green, blue, white, pink or brown.

    Your Australorps will lay brown eggs as well.

    Quote:Yup.

    Quote:They are each individuals - even within the same breed you can have early layers or late layers. Your first will be whoever is the most red in the face.
