    I have 5 laying age
    Americauna
    Black Sex Link
    Buff Orphington
    Barred Rock

    Found a white egg? This was the first time she laid an egg. They just are starting to lay and just got these chickens a month ago. I'm thinking it's the black sex link but don't know for sure. Anyone ever heard of this?

    Do any of the birds have white ear lobes ? If so this may very well be the white egg layer.

    Pictures? One is likely not the breed it was sold as.

    Orpington, and if that's a recent pic, she's not ready to start laying yet.
