    Newbie here. I am suddenly getting a "mystery egg" every morning. Smaller (but not real small) & a perfect light brown. Who ever is laying it is doing so at night so I don't hear the bragging. I m thinking it is my old Polish hen Phylis, she is white with a few black speckles . . . is this a possibility? She seems to be the only one who cares when I pick them up.

    Doubt if she`s laying at night. To determing if a pullet is laying, feel the pelvic bones under(not in) the vent. They should allow you to place about 3 fingertips between them, if she`s laying. If you can`t place but one or two between them she isn`t laying.

    Just for clarification all Polish lay white?
    Ok, I get how to tell on Pullets if they are laying, but what about an old hen? Is there a way to tell with those?
    Thanks!

    That's funny Pennyhen, cause if it's not Phylis laying it then it must be my HennyPenny.
