White eggs!

I know to a lot of people, finding two white eggs in a coop is not exciting.

But to me, it is a celebration!!

In all my years of raising hens for eggs, I have always chosen brown layers and this year, I decided to try white leghorns.  At exactly 22 weeks, they are laying.  I got one white egg yesterday and two white eggs today.  So two of the three are laying (along with my red stars who laid the two brown eggs)!

Very exciting for me!!!

Congrats! It's always great to try something new (a new breed) and get good results!

Crazy question... the eggs don't taste any different, right? I've had both white and brown eggs from the grocery store and never notice the difference.

Do you refrigerate your eggs? They don't refrigerate eggs here.
