new egg layer?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

So I have one girl laying that I  know of.  The 4 eggs on the left are for SURE Lucy's (CQ).  She ALWAYS lays in the box on the left.  Today I went out and there was an egg on the RIGHT... which was weird, to begin with, but then I noticed that it was speckled and none of Lucy's have ever been speckled.  Not even her awkward first egg.

Here is a better close up.

What do you guys think?  Do you think I have a second layer?

I'm going to say... probably. smile  My speckled egg layers are pretty consistent with the speckles.  Aren't eggs cool?

Woohoo I'm so excited!!  I was nervous that I would not be able to tell them apart but if this is what I think it is, I definitely won't have a problem!!  Do you notice that your birds always lay in the same place?
 
Tomorrow will be the TRUE test.  Lucy took the day off today - I can't complain - she laid her first egg on New Years Day and only takes off one day a week.  If I get 2 tomorrow I will know for sure!  smile
