Hello, Could any one help me with why the hens egg shells are turning so light? They use to be such a nice dark brown and now are so pale looking. We are feeding them the same food as before and they get to run in the grass all day. Not sure what happened to their color. Thanks! Sincerely, Kadie Girl

The longer they lay, the paler they get. it's natural. After they molt and rest a bit, the colour will return.

Thanks Jocelyn, It's good to know it is not because they are sick. Kadie Girl
