In my juvenile coop I have - 6 Cornish X pullets, somewhere in the neighborhood of 18 weeks old. All very red in the face and comb for weeks now. Also, 3 turken pullets (one is red in the comb) 3 salmon faverolles pullets (one with a slightly red comb) 2 speckled sussex pullets (not really red combed, more like bright pink) 2 easter egger pullets (not counting them as suspects) and 2 silkies (also not among the suspects). All the layer chicks turned 18 weeks old as of this past Wed., the 13th. On the 13th I got one small beige egg, on the floor of the coop, not in the nestbox. Today I got 2 small beige eggs, on the floor. One was broken, probably from a big ol' CX stepping on it. I'm frustrated that these eggs are nowhere near the nestboxes. If it's the CXs that laid these eggs, I can kinda understand them not being in the nestbox. Although the nestboxes are large, CX's are pretty dumb and clumsy. They make my other chickens look like einsteins. However, I was under the impression that CXs lay large-r eggs from the start. If it's from one of my layer chicks, I need to work on training them to the nestboxes. The boxes already have golf balls in them. On the 13th, I put that first egg I found on the floor in the nestbox and left it there until yesterday evening. I finally took it out because I didn't want it to spoil. The only one singing the eggsong is my CX rooster, so I can't narrow down a suspect. Who do you think laid these eggs?
