I have 12 hens and 3 ducks and I went down the field this morning and found an egg that looked like a chicken egg! My chickens r only 12 weeks old could it possibly be one of theirs? Thanks

Thank you. The chicken in your profile pic is it a hen or a rooster? I have one that looks exactly the same but can't tell whether its a hen or rooster. I can't upload a pic to show you either :(

That's Dottie, BR, she is the top girl in my flock of 6 all hens. Photo was around 15 weeks old.

I think all 3 of yours are BR and girls!

Hope I'm right, but keep a watch on the lighter one..roos are more white than black. But they usually have larger combs/wattles at same age as girls. Prey you don't see saddle feathers or sickle tail start up. I have on BR was much lighter than others and is a girl.
