very light coloured shells
« on: January 10, 2012, 11:21 »
one of my hens - dont no which one, has started laying very very pale almost white eggs and ive always had nice brown eggs, is it normall for shell colours to just change like that or does it mean something else?

they can vary, with the majority of hens the colour is the last process of the egg laying sequence (araucanas are different with this). If you get an egg just after it has been laid you can rub the colour off - sometimes even their bedding will do that  :)
Staffies are softer than you think.
