    I have two bantam Cochins and two silkies that are 25 weeks old. One of them started laying last Saturday and today another one states laying! Just trying to figure out whats coming from who. Is the brown egg the Cochin and the light cream the silkie? Also the one I found today had a little blood on it, is this normal for a pullets first egg?

    The blood is normal, and the brown egg is the cochin's, and the lighter egg is the silkie's.

    I would guess that the light eggs are from a silky and the brown egg is from a cochin. It sometimes takes a little stretching and a little bleeding for the 'egg machinery' early in the process.
