    Hello all, I'm not sure which of my other hens laid a new egg today? I have a barred rock silky-mix that lays a tan colored egg, and a Orpington mix that lays a lil' larger tan egg than the other. I know it wasn't either of their eggs.

    None of our other hens had been laying. Today, I found a long- pinkish tinted, heavy-thick, egg which seems to have little tiny white specks. Not totally sure who it came from?

    Our other breeds are 6 months, and are:
    1 EE
    1Blue Wyondotte
    1French Cuckoo Marans
    1 Orpington

    Out of those my guesses would be the EE, Marans, maybe the Orpington or possibly the RIR, but my Road Island Red is a still on the small side, as well as the Marans a smaller girl right now...?

    What are all of your thoughts out there?

    Thank you!
