    i have cochin bantams and chabos running together and *someone* (or should i say 2 someones!) have been laying lots of eggs, 14 in 7 days to be exact! both lots of eggs are white yet one half are shorter/stubbier that the other 7......
    any idea what chabo eggs look like and what cochin kriel eggs look like? colour? shape?

    hmmm all these cochin eggs seem to have a brownish hue to them, the eggs i have (both lots) are whiter than white! hmmm maybe chabo then? hopefully someone will come along in a bit with some chabo egg pictures!

    If you really want to figure out who is laying what, you could use food coloring on the hens vents. You could use a color like green on one breed and a color like blue or yellow on the other breed. I would not use red. The food coloring is totally harmless.
