    Now I know the grey one is suppose to lay those but is it possible the one next to it laid that egg? Im asking because I was in the coop earlier and thought I saw the brown hen drop that egg out. I was watching her for a few minutes and turned away for a second and she stood up and I heard a thump and the egg was underneath still wet. I grabbed it and it dried completely within seconds.

    The brown hen looks like an Easter Egger, though from the photo, it doesn't appear she has much of a beard, if any. So, I'd say that is who laid the egg, if you think you saw her lay it.


    The "grey" hen is actually what you'd call blue, not grey.

    Okay, I'm pretty sure the blue one is either an ameraucanas or a cochin[​IMG][​IMG]

    Your blue hen is a Cochin and did not lay the green egg. It was another one.

    The grey (blue) hen is a Blue Cochin, so would lay a brown egg. The brown bird in this photo is the bird laying the green eggs.

    The blue bird is a Blue Cochin hen, which lays a brown egg. The other bird is an Easter Egger pullet, and is the bird that laid you that pretty green/blue egg.

    Agree with everyone else. The cochin will lay a lighter brown/creamy tan egg, your brown hen is one of the beardless EE we're seeing a lot of the last year or so.
