    i have a few eggs i cannot figure out which girls are laying them.

    i have on cream color egg always on the ground under the nestbox.
    it is a decent size egg - smaller, but still good size. never thought unitl now it could come from my crested polish.

    Sounds like the egg my WCBP lays. Is it a funny shape too? Mine lays a really pointed egg.

    Ah those Polish... yes, the eggs tend to be pointed. And if you find an egg on the ground, it's likely from a Polish - sometimes mine forget to go into the coop to lay and look surprised when they lay on the ground. Ditzy birds. BTW, I trim their topknot feathers, which seems to help them figure out where to go (and not walk into fences, which I've seen them do.) Blogpost here about this:

    Most will lay pointed eggs although I have a few of my girls that If I didn't know they weren't all Polish I would say it was from a Silkie but more in likely it's a Polish.
