I have 5 SS hens that are 14months old and 2 Wellies and 1 EE that are almost 20 weeks. I have gotten a different looking egg twice this week. I am thinking one of my Wellies has started laying but these eggs aren't much darker then some that my SS lay. I was out watching my chickens today and of course some of them pooped and that got me thinking. Could the diameter of the poop be some indication that the pullet is laying? My SS have big blobs of poop but my 3 pullets still have smaller diameter poop that sort of looks like a snail or over size feed pellet.
