    So I have one girl laying that I know of. The 4 eggs on the left are for SURE Lucy's (CQ). She ALWAYS lays in the box on the left. Today I went out and there was an egg on the RIGHT... which was weird, to begin with, but then I noticed that it was speckled and none of Lucy's have ever been speckled. Not even her awkward first egg.

    What do you guys think? Do you think I have a second layer?

    I'm going to say... probably. [​IMG] My speckled egg layers are pretty consistent with the speckles. Aren't eggs cool?

    Woohoo I'm so excited!! I was nervous that I would not be able to tell them apart but if this is what I think it is, I definitely won't have a problem!! Do you notice that your birds always lay in the same place?

    Tomorrow will be the TRUE test. Lucy took the day off today - I can't complain - she laid her first egg on New Years Day and only takes off one day a week. If I get 2 tomorrow I will know for sure! [​IMG]
