    My wife and I went walking while ago and upon our return, swung by the chickenhouse to check for eggs. We never expected to find one this small. Seven mature BR's, 4 RIR's and 2 young Black Sex Links......which laid it? I have seen the BSL's on the nests at one time or another, so I have suspected that at least one of them was laying, but I'm not certain. Is it possible this is just a fluke and one of the others laid it, or is it most likely a first for one of them?

    Looks like a new layer indeed!
    Or it could be that something isn't taking their job seriously enough. He he, we've had a bird or 2 that have laid a small puny egg for no reason.

    LOL! I'll have to call them that for now on! [​IMG]
