    Congratulations on the eggs. I have no idea about which chicken laid what unfortunately. But I bet someone here on BYC does.

    Quote:if it was the roos they are worth alot of money...that is very rare...I have had many hens that crowed, saddle feathers and all that but never a roo that laid an egg...

    wait...wrong...that was me messing up sexing chicks...nevermind

    I think cochins lay brown eggs. I'm going thru the same thing right now...I have a mystery brown egg and I think it's my bantam cochin, but she's only 17 weeks old...but her comb is red.
