    I have 10 Rhode Island Reds, 2 Guineas, 1 white rock and 2 leg horns.

    I know the Rhodies are laying already, the white rock started laying about a month ago, very small light colored egg. But last week, we started to get one tiny white egg a day. I'm not sure if it is the Leg Horn, Guinea or the white rocks egg has now turned white. Can anyone help me? Thanks in advanced.

    My guess is one of the Leghorns. It could be that the White Rocks egg suddenly turned white but a chickens egg usally does not change color. Guineas lay medium sized brown eggs so it couldnt be them.
    Hope this helps,

    Leghorn. Your darker/bigger brown eggs will be the RIR's. Whites, Leghorns. And I believe Rocks lay a tan colored egg? I'm not sure, too many breeds to remember [​IMG] LOL.

    Not the guinea, their eggs are more conical shaped. that is shaped just like my dad's brown leghorn eggs and is the right size too.

    Guinea eggs are distinctly different, smaller, and you can see the pores. They also have a very thick shell, hard to crack sometimes. Just FYI for future reference [​IMG]
