Brahma egg?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
My chickens are just starting to lay and im not sure who is laying what. I know my welsummer is laying the brown speckled eggs and i think these 2 belong to my australorp and a light brahma. I just started to getting the light tan eggs with white speckles today and noticed the brahma checking out the nexting boses and doing the egg song today. The black australorp also was in the box. Does this light tan egg with white speckles look like a brahma egg?

The lighter egg is similar in shade to those produced by my light brahmas.

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

White speckles are just areas where the brown "spray paint" didn't settle and cover

Agrees^^

 

Sometimes my brahma eggs have lighter colored speckles that are excessive bloom.

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."
