    Hello all. We have a very small flock. A total of 6. We ordered day old females who are now a little over 5 mo old. One ea RIR, White Leghorn, Buff Orpington, Plymouth Rock, Jersey Giant, and we acquired an ISA Brown Roo who was 5 mos old when our "girls" were 3 mos.

    We discovered our White Leghorn is also a Roo. So far there is no fighting, and the girls aren't overly "burdened."

    Here's the question. Someone started laying eggs right at 5 mos. Given our diverse flock, we have no idea who the eggs are from. We looked online but that wasn't very helpful.

    I've attached a pic, anyone have any ideas?

    I am unsure. You might also post in the Chicken Behaviors and Egg Laying Forum...others may recognize those shades of browns and help you ID the breed that layed them. Also, stop over at the New Members Forum so we can give you a proper BYC Greeting!! [​IMG]
