    My girls are going out of their way to confuse me lately, and I'd like to see what the Javas are supposed to lay. I thought they weren't laying but I'm starting to wonder at the variety of shapes and colors I'm getting.

    No pics, but Java`s lay a large light brown egg.

    To determine if your pullet is laying, feel the bones UNDER the vent. They are like pelvic bones and they spread when laying. Large breed pullets should have enough space between the boned to insert 2-3 fingertips, when laying. Only one if not laying. You don`t have to get your fingers dirty, the bones are UNDER the vent.........Pop

    mine are laying very light brown, or "tinted" or creamy colored eggs, about the color of tinted cochin eggs. I will try to get a pic today and post it here.
