I have a few hens (left), a BO, an EE, a BLRW, and a Columbian. I was getting tan spotted eggs from the buff, ( I caught her laying) then I found some smaller cream colored eggs, I thought they must be the columbians. But then I got different shades of very light brown, kind of cream, some with spots some with out. I'm pretty sure the BLR is not laying, and the EE is 18+ months and hasn't laid since a molt (when I bought her), I think? Sadly I lost my little buff silkie hen to a neighbors tom cat, and the girls haven't laid a single egg since she was killed. So are the spots consistent? Can I count on that as a distinguishing feature? I just want to nail down who's laying and who's not. I'll still keep them all, but I'd like to know.
