    Could these all be Isa browns'? I didn't think any of my other hens were laying. (Well I do know that 2 are but their eggs are different). These Isa browns are 20ish weeks.

    These are eggs from two of my five Golden Comets when they started to lay.[​IMG] The white egg is fake. And here is a recent photo.[​IMG] still a deference in color. GC

    Yes, they could be from your Isa browns.

    Examine vents and pelvic points to see who is laying and who is not.

    Vent Appearance:
    Dry, tight, and smaller - usually not laying.
    Moist, wide, and larger - usually laying.

    Pelvic Points 2 bony points(pelvic bones) on either side of vent:
    Less than 2 fingertip widths apart usually means not laying.
    More than 2 fingertip widths apart usually means laying.
