    I have been finding 1 egg a day that looks like this and I am just currious what breed may have layed it... LB, BO, BR, RIR, or PR... I am guessing the LB but just not sure. I haven't been able to catch any of the LB laying, I know they are but by the time I get to the coop this type egg is with one or more eggs in a nest. I was just currious if any of you have had any of these pretty eggs layed by any of the breeds that I have mentioned. There is nothing at all wrong with the shell, nice and thick. Thanks
