    Ok so I have 4 chickens that haven't laid there first egg(3 definite hens, 1 not so sure) and we got a small egg today. It was laid away from the usual laying box and it was much smaller than the other 2 layers (Ancona and Brown Leghorn). It was definitely a new one but not sure which one. We have 2 Light Sussex's (Hatched 16 Oct) and 2 Pekin's (Hatched about 11 Oct, 1 of which may be a Roo). The egg was a creamy coloured one. Hoping someone could help figure out which chicken it was!!?

    By the way I'm in Aus so it is mid summer now. Don't know if that makes a difference but yeah

    I have a pekin hatched September 29 who isn't laying yet so I'd be totally jealous if yours was laying so early!
    It will be the one with the biggest and reddest comb
