I would LOVE to have a thread where everyone could post pics of their un-identified eggs and have some seasoned (or unseasoned!) BYC folks help identify them. I've been searching for days and there isn't a lot of help out there (like eggs labeled by breed) on this website or the world wide web. (Please direct me if I'm missing something.) The only thing I've found is this BYC thread http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/330479/eggs-by-breed-pic.
It's a good start but needs to be revived and have a lot more contributions.
HELP me by going to the above linked thread or posting on this one!
Here's my eggs and my questions:
I have 5 hens that are at point of lay. They all have bright red combs and wattles. From oldest to youngest they are two 21 week old Production Reds, one 19 week old BO, two 19 week old Australorps. On July 30th I got my first egg. I am almost positive it was from my oldest PR, Peach. I checked her vent and her pubic bones. The next day I got an identical egg. They are the same shape, color and each have a wrinkly end with red smudges on the wrinkles. On Day 3 I got a different egg. It is smaller, a slightly different shape and has little dots on the wide end (not speckles-much smaller). I checked everyone's pubic bones and the widest are Peach's and Alaska's (Alaska is one of the Australorps). The other detail is that the first egg was laid in the middle box (I have 3 egg boxes), #2 egg was laid on the far left and the #3 egg was in the center again.
