    My girls are 18 weeks old and today I found our first egg. But I am not sure which one laid it.
    Here is a picture of our first egg:

    And here are the canidates:

    Poachy- a black australorp. She has just started to get a comb and wattles.

    Scramble- a black australorp. She is the loudest of the group.

    Sunny- a production red. She has the biggest comb out of them all.

    Yolka- a production red. She is the skinniest.

    If your egg is white it probably isn't your australorps, they lay brown eggs, I'm not sure about the others.

    I hope you tell us because I thought all your ladies would lay brown eggs!

    The egg is like a pinkish color. And all of them are suppose to lay brownish eggs. I think it should darken when they get older though. [​IMG]
