Is the only way to be sure about which chicken is laying...

    And how often it is laying - to isolate it for a few days? I THINK 5 of my birds are laying based on the sizes and colors of the eggs that I am getting... I know two of the layers, but I'm not sure who else is laying and not laying....

    Is the only way to figure this out to isolate a chicken for a couple of days, and to rotate through the birds to "test" each of them?
