    I came across this egg while cleaning out the coop,,,we have a sultan which I know only lay 60 eggs a year. Plus it doesn't look developed enough to lay yet but we have a warren,,2 black rocks and a Brahma cross cockerel so couldn't be the others or could it the warren lays everyday but brown eggs

    Not sure what a Warren is, since I am in the US. Your Rocks will lay brown eggs, but you'll probably have to wait until 22-25 weeks for them to begin.

    The egg you found is from your Sultan. They lay a few smaller-than-average sized white eggs.

    All of my chickens are brown egg layers but when they are new to laying it takes time for their bodies to get use to laying. I've got a number of cream colored eggs and also "jumbo" eggs, both of which are not normal for the breeds.
