    I have a young flock, hatch date around 8/14/13, of 2 RIW and 2 Dominique's. They started laying just after Christmas but I have no idea which eggs belong to which chickens. I think up until today have only been laying, we usually get 2 eggs a day, today we had 3 and the 3rd egg is a different shape and size. Any ideas? I am surprised they are laying already, seems a little young and it's been cold.
    The pic with 3 is from today, as you can see one is smaller and more oblong in shape, the single egg was the first ever. Thoughts as to who started laying first?

    Congrats on getting first eggs. Hens combs pink up and look larger when they start laying. Smaller paler combs may be newer layers. Hope that helps.

    They're all pretty big and very red, but of. Of course I have an untrained eye! We are getting 2-4 a day now, usually 3. Thanks!!!
