What breed laid this egg? - Page 2

Should be actual Araucana.

Ok so we got another one of those new eggs yesterday and another today, although today's looks a little different and I saw the Plymouth Rock was standing around near the nesting box and the egg was warm while the others were outside.

 

Here's today's egg, it's slightly larger and rounder and browner.

 

Here's to compare, the top two are the other new eggs and the 3rd one is today's.

 

And comparing with one of the Barnevelder's.

 

 

Do you think those three could be from the same chicken? And would it be more likely the Plymouth Rock or the Araucana?

True Araucana only lay blue eggs. My Barred Rocks lay shades of light tan, brown, and a few even lay pink. The shade of brown can vary a lot within a breed.

Got this one yesterday

 

To compare with one of the little ones and one of the Barnevelder's.

 

Here's another one from today.

 

How much does the color usually vary within one individual chicken?

Color and size can vary but shape usually does not... unless it's a double yolker.

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!!!
