    So I have 5 pullets (Buff Orp, 2 Barred Rocks, Black Australorp, and a Golden Laced Wyandotte) and in the past day have gotten 3 eggs. They are a light brownish color and I think it is my BO Lucy's. I think she is around 6mos. Old. The others are at least a month or two younger. Photos of the eggs below

    UPDATE: I was eating breakfast and decided to have an egg. The biggest egg was a double-yolker!!!!

    BO eggs are very light so i don't think the egg came from the BO

    I have not opened the eggs yet but I think 2of them. (on the left) are too small to be a double yolker.

    There was a small light feather on my egg yesterday and my BO is screaming right now.... Going to check on her.
    She hasn't laid an egg today, but she's sitting in the nest box while the others were it foraging in the yard. Maybe trying to lay. It was the nest box where we found all three eggs...

    To dark for Orpington eggs. I'd say they are the Barred Rock and Australorp eggs.

    My BO Lucy and my one of my barred rocks have started squatting, but my BO started squatting earlier than my barred rock.
