    Hi friends! Yesterday I got my first ever egg from one of my 4 girls. I was sad to not know which one it was but I caught my SF dropping an egg about a half hour ago. She was acting strange all day. She was running back and forth like she was trying to find a place all morning and then she squatted for a minute and I knew something other than poop was gonna come out unless she was constipated[​IMG]Do you think she could've layed my first egg? It was layed around 10:15 am yesterday...

    It's funny how the first eggs surprise them. Hopefully she will move to a nest for the future.

    Compare the first egg with this one and if they are shaped and colored the same, then likely the same Pullet laid both?

    Shape and color could tell the tale......or you could look under the tails.

    Pelvic spacing is key IMO.

    Vent Appearance:
    Dry, tight, and smaller - usually not laying.
    Moist, wide, and larger - usually laying.

    Pelvic Points 2 bony points(pelvic bones) on either side of vent:
    Less than 2 fingertip widths apart usually means not laying.
    More than 2 fingertip widths apart usually means laying.
