    Hi! I am wondering if anyone can help me in why one of my lorps are laying light (very) tan eggs and about medium size? My other lorp is laying a brown/rose colored egg that turns very dark once cold. Neither eggs are as large as my reds however. I was able to determine what egg is coming from which but now i am confused as to why one lorps eggs are much smaller and lighter. Thank you.

    Every hen lays her eggs her way. There's a general size and color expectation based on breed but each hen is different.
