Redrose, do you mean "will hens lay eggs without a rooster?" Yes, they will, and sometimes better since he's not harassing them all the time.

yes, brown are good! i am getting buckeyes, they lay brown, and brown leghorns, they lay white but only buckeye roosters, so then when it's hatching time i will just hatch the brown eggs and get pure buckeyes. whatever you get, feed them as natural as possible,a nd your eggs will taste better!
