Ok, so today was the first day I got 5 eggs. I actually have 11 hens that are old enough to lay, but I can tell by vents, combs, wattles, who is likely to be laying and who isn't. But I'm not sure who is laying what. Tell me what you think. Which chicken goes with each egg.

Eggs
small pointy white
medium pale brown or peach color
darker brown medium and rounded
very large (double yolker as 1st egg?) pale brown
medium rounded brown w/ speckles and shaded bands
small pale brown, pointy

Hens
Easter Egger - laying for sure
Blue Andalusian - laying for sure
Red Star - was laying every day, but haven't had an egg that looks like her normal dark brown for 4 days now
Light Brahma - pretty sure 1st egg was today
Silver Laced Wyandotte - I think is laying from vent appearance, but not for sure
Black Australorp - from vent does not appear to be laying, but comb and wattles very red and large

So there's the run down. I only got 5 eggs, but it is possible that all 6 are laying, but I really don't think the BA is laying yet.

Have fun playing the matching game!!

Yes, I am sure my EE is laying, and I have never gotten a greenish egg. I am pretty sure she lays the very light brown, peachy colored egg.

Thanks for the site. I will check it out.
