    Congrats! Do any of your 5 month olds look close to laying? Was the egg a "normal" looking one of a similar size and colour to what the other one used to lay or was it smaller or not fully formed like a first egg from someone else might sometimes be?

    A bit of detective work should help you figure out whose it was, or failing that, keep a close eye on the nest boxes for a few days and see who uses it.
