I have a 2 year old sex link, and I've added 4 orps who are now 4 and a half months old. I though that was too young to lay, but today I found the older hen sitting on the smaller egg, and I've been finding these large misshapen eggs for a week or so. Am I correct in thinking the these couldnt possibly have came from the same hen?
The lighter egg looks an awful lot like those my orps lay - 4 1/2 months isn't outside the realm of possibility for the onset of production, especially if these are hatchery orps . My orps were the first to lay in my flock this year.
