    I have a 6mo. old F. Pekin and a 5mo. old Khaki Campbell.
    I JUST GOT MY FIRST EGG YESTERDAY!!! and SECOND EGG TODAY!! YEA! but im not sure to tell who is leaving me the gifts. Is it the Pekin or Khaki? How can you tell the difference? It is about the size of a ckn. egg and it is a cream in color.
    Any help would be great!
    Thanks,
    T.

    I would say the Khaki cambel is probably the one leaving the eggs. The pekins usually leave much bigger, jumbo eggs compared to other species...
