All I can say, is, that is what it is. I have two 6 1/2 year old hens, and one still gives me an egg every now and then. She used to lay a lovely deep brown egg, and now it's almost white. That's how I know it's hers.

I think after they molt and every so many months the colors change a little. Sometimes I go to wash an egg and the color comes with it!!
