    Yesterday O got 4 eggs I have only been getting 3 so the question is who dunnit?

    I have 2 light brown and 2 medium brown.

    I know I have 1 RIR and at least black sex kink laying. They have laid the light brown eggs. I have one more sex link and a plymoth barred that should start soon. Is the darker egg just one of the sex link changeing color or the rock? It is also bigger that the sexlink have laid to this point. The egg in question is the lower right corner.

    my guess is the RIR..my cochins will sometimes lay a lighter egg one day than the other...it's amazing, but they are seperated from the rest of the flock to keep them all pure, so I know it HAS to be them...
