    geepers that is a hard one. faveolles lay a cream egg, RIR a brown, Orpingtons lay a light brown sometimes very light. I don't see a cuckoo egg or marans of any kind in there. I am just not sure as even my eggs from orps. sometimes vary in color and shape slightly. My wheaten maransX cuckoo is much darker. I am not sure of the sussex either. Gloria jean

    Yeah, that's just about an impossible thing to do. Too bad the seller didn't mark the eggs for you!!
