    My guess would be that your Black Sex-Link and Wyandotte are laying the eggs, or all three of them are. Bailey's comb isn't quite as large and red as the other two (a hen's comb gets redder and larger when it is getting ready to begin laying).

    I'm positive both are laying but have never seen them hop into a nest box except chirp hopefully someone who owns a BSL can show a pic of there eggs.Would you by any chance of a pic of your Wyendotte eggs?

    Sorry, I don't have any pictures of my bird's eggs right now (and they are all done laying for the winter, so I won't be able to get any). In general, my Wyandottes eggs are a light brown color, with a few very small whitish speckles.

    I would say the darker eggs was layed by the BSL as the other two normally lay lighter brown eggs. Is that definitely a black sex link? I have never seen an all black one. Mine always have brown around the neck and chest.

    I'm pretty sure unless she's a Jersery. She was labeled a Australorp but is nothing like mine she's much bigger more shiney and body shape is different. She has some brown on her neck just not much. She has little yellow feet ((bottom side))

    The four eggs on the right are from our recent Wyandotte layer. The left 2 are potentially from our Polish.
