First egg from my new batch of pullets!!!!!!!!- who laid it??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

This spring I got 10 pullets from the store, one (the other 3 were cockerels) was almost a month older.

That one that's a month older is my spangled OEGB Jace. (yeah, I thought she was a cockerel too!) I got her on april 16.

On April 30th, I got 5 black sexlinks and 4 EE's. I got my first obvious pullet egg just now!! Its the size to either be a bantam or a large egg, so I'm a little confused. I have 2 full sized banties and I compared their egg to this and it was the same size, with this one being a little skinnier.

So, who do you think laid this? Probably not my EE's, but was it Jace or the sexlinks?

 

Pic: this was taken next to a regular size egg for comparison.

I can provide more details or pictures of the hens that might have laid them if needed. 

 

P.S. jace's and the sexlink's combs both look like they are more than ready to lay.

It was your game hen.   I have 4 at present. They lay surprisingly  large eggs for their size.
