my one girl just turned 18 weeks! my other girl had been laying for awhile but how do i tell who is laying it?
We have twelve hen Ducks and four Isa Brown hens who all have started laying eggs in the same coop. I am pretty sure I know where the dark brown eggs are coming from!I used to think I could tell, when I had 6 ducks laying daily. I was very confident. In truth I could only tell which egg was layed by my cayuga who layed black/grey eggs. I only realized this when one of my ducks passed away. The egg I was sure was hers continued appearing everyday.
Now I have 3 and can tell, because I have had to isolate them for medical reasons. If they are in a cage alone and produce an egg that's theirs. If you see it come out of them, it is theirs. Otherwise you are guessing and will perhaps be wrong for years.
Do you mean that for quite a while you've been getting one egg each day, and now you're getting 2? In that case, the new egg comes from the new layer.my one girl just turned 18 weeks! my other girl had been laying for awhile but how do i tell who is laying it?
