    So, I have 5 ladies, 4 of whom are laying near daily. I've tried to figure out out on my own but thought you guys might be able to help me figure out which egg is coming from which chicken. They're all different breeds: Black Australorp, Wyandotte, Barnevelder, and White Brahma. My Buff Orpington is broody, so I can definitely rule her out. But since they all lay varying shades of brown, I'm at a loss. Help?

    Wyandotte is probably the smaller egg on top right, mine always lay elongated eggs, barnevelder is the dark brown, though it's not very dark for a barnevelder, I would guess the first one is your Australorp, and the bottom right is the Brahma.

    My Barnevelders lay speckled eggs that look just like the lower left. Sorry I can't help with the other eggs though.
