    Check out online or in books what color egg layers you have, maybe then you can determine which hen layed it.

    Either be there when she lays it, or isolate each and every one for 2 days to see who lays(I don't recommend this though, very stress full on them). Is it real important to know which one(is she gonna get a special treat?[​IMG]). I would just celebrate the egg. WooHoo.[​IMG]
