Certain eggs from a certain chicken

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Is there a way I can keep track of a certain chickens eggs (lavender orpington or bantams) when they are in with my mixed flock? Because I would like to incubate ONLY my lavender orpington eggs and some of my bantams and not eat them. Anyone know? Or is it even possible?

Thanks

You'll have to stake out the coop to keep an eye out for eggs from certain hens. Or, you could put a few drops of food dye in the vents of hens you want eggs from. When the eggs come out, they should be streaked with color. You'll probably have to dye their vents every day or every other day until you get all the eggs you want though.

Good luck!
