Trying to figure out which hens laid which egg so I can label them when I incubate! Thanks! I’ve got an idea on them but want to see what y’all though

I can’t tell you who laid those eggs but I think the cuckoo maran might be the one that hasn’t laid yet. I’m saying that because I would expect her eggs to be a darker brown or a chocolate color, unless she does just lay light brown eggs.

When my girls start laying, I'm out there checking alot. I do end up figuring out who lays which, color don't tell much as the shades change now and then but have learned to recognize by the shape of the egg.

You could put different color lipstick on their vent, it'll show up on the egg. Also read food coloring. Never tried either, just alot of walking to check .... exercise.

Tha maran actually might have laid the egg at the top right, I’m saying that because it has speckles unless that’s just dirt. But then again she could just lay light brown eggs or none yet.
