    My chicks are only 10 days old (but who's counting? [​IMG]) and reading everyone's posts about eggs has me excited for them to start laying!! [​IMG]

    Well - Barred Rocks lay brown eggs and Leghorns lay white eggs ... So, what color was the egg?

    You may be able to look at the vent of the chickens and find the one with the largest, moistest vent and make a guess that way.

    Otherwise - you just have to catch them in the nest ... that's what we ended up doing to find our first layer.
