    I was cleaning up the coop today, and i looked over and saw a white bump sticking out of my nest box... I thought no. It can't be. I started screaming out of excitement thinking finally. AN EGG! And then i look over, and what do i see in the next nest box? ANOTHER egg!!!! AHHH!!! I ran into my house, my parents thought i had a broken foot or something cause i was screaming!!! I was so excited...

    Here they are! : [​IMG]
    Next to a white store bought egg

    This one??? He's pretty big and manly for a hen... [​IMG]

    This one??[​IMG] [​IMG]

    I think its this one... i know she is a hen. She is super tiny. Just like the eggs?? hmmm...[​IMG] [​IMG]

    Adorable! It's got to be your white one. The third pic down could be a hen, but the rest of them look like males.

    Isn't it great to find eggs??!!! One of mine just started laying last week and it's so exciting to look in there and see an egg. The other day, we lifted the nesting box lid to look, and there she was actually laying an egg. It popped right out and it was all warm! [​IMG]

    You have a lot of Easter Egger cockerels there. [​IMG]

    The white one with the black specks (California White) is your culprit. The brown girl will lay brown eggs.
