Egg Eggsperts? :)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Alright so I went out to my coop yesterday and found a really cool and just assumed it was from my maran. She just recently started laying so she's not on a regular schedule yet and for the same reason, I didn't think much when this egg was in a different box than she has laid all the others. But, I have four dark Brahmas that were 27 weeks old on Sunday and today I went to collect eggs and my maran laid her usual looking one in her regular box. So now I'm thinking this speckled one is from one of m dark Brahmas? Can one chicken lay eggs this different from one day to another? Does this speckled one look like a dark Brahma egg? I know the one on the left is from my maran because I saw her lay it smile.png

I can tell who lays which egg because they are almost always the same shape, the eggs get lighter through the season but the shape doesn't change unless they lay a double yolker. Those are from two different hens, don't know about Brahma egg color though.

Yep, coating can change but shape usually stays the same...those look to be about the same shape.

I think most brahmas lay pretty light brown eggs, sometimes pinkish.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
