I have new hens that just started laying. Most of my eggs are tiny. This is a medium egg. Looks pinkish brown.. Which hen do you think laid this egg??
I have these possible prospects...Colombian rock, amber link, dark and buff brahmas, golden and silver Wyandotte other than the marans and americanas and white layers)

Rocks will lay pink eggs regardless of their feather coloring. We have partridge and barred here that lay pink ones, I'd assume Columbians would too! :)

Hmm weird! My barred rock lays a brown egg... That's why I didn't mention her she's 2 yr old and I can tell which egg is here assuming the egg color dosent change. I did get her egg with the pinkish one. Prob the Colombian! Cool

I can always tell which one my rocks lay... they're just so pretty! I didn't get them for that reason but I was pleased as punch to learn this when they did start laying. :) I posted this photo on another thread earlier today... A pink rock egg (left) next two two eggs either laid by Orpington or Brahmas...
