    I found my first egg Monday evening and my second one Wednesday morning. I thought they are both from the same hen but when I looked at them side by side one is much lighter.

    So what do you think? do I have two layers or one that's trying to find her groove?

    I know I have one hen at least two weeks older than the others, my black sex link, her pelvis is at least three fingers back and three fingers wide but I also have a Rhode Island red with just as much room.

    What do the experts think?
