Chickens and Egg Color
« on: September 23, 2019, 08:34:52 AM »
I came across this on another forum. Though it was interesting info so decided to share here. The egg color is in the breeding, a genetic thing. Possibly more than you want to know. Earlobes? Yes.

Yes, interesting.

Our hens lay a variety of color. Used to be just a light brown color, as we had all buffs. But since the banty rooster showed up, they have added off white and light green eggs.

Yeah the banty is probably a different breed, genetics, and may be aggressive also. Has he tried to spur you?

I read that wrong. Put boot and pretty together for booty. Banty don't like big booty. LMAO
