    I was wondering if anyone could determine if the right egg is from a
    Buff Orpington or Golden Comet. The one on the left is from our BSL.
    Thanks!

    Welcome to BYC!

    Almost impossible to tell from that pic...or any pic.

    Time for butt checks!...if you really want to know who is laying and who is not.

    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.
