I use different colored zip ties as leg bands to identify different hatches.
You could do that, black band = no eggs, green band = 3 eggs per week, white band = 4 eggs weekly, you get the idea.

Easiest is to separate them in order to find out who is laying, how many they lay, and who's not. That's how I found out between suspects.
