    I figured the first one was a fluke..... now I get one everyday! I have several breeds at point-of-lay so I have no idea who is laying the round eggs. [​IMG]

    I've got an Orp that only lays torpedo eggs. Funny how they all do things just a tad differently.

    Maybe she thought she'd copy the golfballs in the nesting box. [​IMG] Next thing you know she'll be putting dimples in them.

    My hubbies old-timer uncle once told me that pointy eggs are more likely to be Roo's. This looks like a good way to test that theory!

    Two of my brahmas lay round eggs from time to time and one always lays the torpedo or pullet bullet eggs (long, slender).
