Another rousing round of Who Laid This Egg.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have two culprits for this first time XS egg (39g). First is a jersey giant. Her comb and waggled are the reddest in the whole flock. The second is a Swedish flower x blue Orpington cross that isn't as red, but has been squatting for weeks. This egg seems pretty dark for either breed...so what do you think?

The tiny brown egg.


Jersey is right behind the Swedish flower cross.

Probably your jersey...they'll lay eggs from dark brown to almost cream, and sometimes even speckled.
I have 1 fat cat, and raise true black/blue, silver, white and wheaten Ameraucanas, runmpless araucana, Olive eggers, speckled sussex, wheaten and copper marans, lavender orpingtons, 1 pet delaware hen, white crested and buff laced polish, 1 pet barred rock hen,1 ring neck cock pheasant, 6 ring neck hens, 4 guinea fowl, a smorgasbord of turkeys, 2 kids, and 1 husband.

You are right! The next day the other girl laid to confirm the tiny dark brown eggs are from our jersey.
