    I found my first egg Saturday....YAY! So far I have gotten an egg every other day. The first one was really small, and the second one was a little bigger. I'm not sure what hen is laying. The black sex links are about five months old, so I would think it would be one of them. We also have bantams who are younger. My question is, how can I tell if it's a bantam egg or from one of the sex links? They are smaller than a "small" egg, and a light tannish color.

    Based on the color and size, I would venture to say bantam? congrats, regardless! [​IMG]
