Are these eggs from the same chicken?

    I got my first egg two days ago! I am so excited!
    Today I got my second egg. It looks pretty different than the first egg... Do I have two layers? One? Is there a way to even tell?
    I know their eggs can be different when they start laying. Is that the case?

    I would say probably from 2 different pullets...Congrats!

    What breed of chickens do you have?
    ETA....duh just saw the list of breeds in your siggy.

    Darker one could be from the barnevelder or the red start OR the welsummer.

    2 different pullets. The first few eggs will look a little different but not that much. Shape, color and size are all different. A first time layers also usually lays her first egg than 2-3 days later lays her second. Agree the L looks like your welsummer and the R looks like my BR but could be any of them except the Barnevelder and maybe the EE (I have a brown laying EE)

    When it rains, it pours I guess!
