Are there certain types of chickens that make brown eggs?

    Hens that produce brown eggs are larger than their counterparts that produce white eggs. They also require more food and care, which is why brown eggs are more expensive. White Leghorns are the most popular white-egg-laying breed, and Rhode Island Reds are most commonly used to lay brown eggs. Additionally, most hens with white earlobes produce white eggs, and most hens with red earlobes produce brown eggs.

    The color of the eggs can very on the hen and is sometimes dependent on their diet. Black Australorps that I have owned have laid the normal brown eggs but also a more greenish shelled egg in a season when we were using less feed and letting them forage more.
