So, will my girls always lay the same shade of what ever color they lay? So far I have 4 layers, one who has been skipping days right off the bat, and two who have been consistent daily layers. So far, each of their eggs are exact in color shade, so it's easy to look at it and say "that's Jailbreaker's shade of brown" and "that one is my Jeepers light brown egg". I can hold their egg from 3 days ago up to today's egg and it's a match. Will this ever change, or can I become consistent with knowing which of my 8 hens eggs are whoms just by knowing their egg shade/colors? I know the eggs will gradually get bigger, but I don't know if I can depend on the egg being the same shade of color constantly. I know 3 of my 4 layers right now, caught them and collected their egg very shortly after laying, so there's no confusion. One is still a mystery.. didn't lay yesterday and so far didn't lay today (stinker!) but is there any chance the new layer yesterday could have been my mystery layer and I only have 3 laying? The only thing that tells me no is that the color isn't exact. My new layer from yesterday is closer to a white while my mystery one looks like a creme color.
