    We got our first egg today... laid not in the nice comfy nest boxes, not in the coop, but all the way out in the enclosed run. Darn chickens! But my question is who laid it? We have a BR a RSL and a RIR ...and the EE which I know its not that [​IMG]

    Ideas?

    If they are all the same age, I would guess the RSL. Congratulations! [​IMG]

    I think it's the sex link.

    The egg in the center here is a barred rock egg:
