When you have several chickens of the same age and breed, how do you know which hen laid which egg? Or which hens are laying? We're getting our first chicks from MPC in about a week. One of them will be easy, since we only have one white egg layer in the group. But three will lay brown eggs (two speckled sussex and one wyandotte) and two of them will be EE. Are there any tricks other than being very observant and seeing who's sitting in the nest box just before an egg magically appears?
