    I am trying to figure out which hens are laying. Am I wrong in assuming that these eggs could be from at least 3 different hens???

    What kind of chickens do you have? The blue egg is probably either from an Easter Egger, Legbar, or Ameraucana.

    Leghorns- White eggs
    Black Copper Marans- dark to extra dark brown eggs, they can be speckled too
    Golden Cuckoo Maran- dark eggs, they can be speckled
    Easter Egger- Blue, olive, white, and brown eggs

    What do you mean by Leghorn/Easter Egger? Do you mean a mix?

    Well if she is a Leghorn and EE mix there is a chance for here to lay blue or green eggs, so the blue egg came from her.

    Ok thanks. Are the brown spotted eggs & the solid brown eggs coming from different chickens? Is it possible for a particular hen to lay both solid & spotted eggs?
