    We got two eggs or neighbor found while we were gone over the weekend.
    What's more likely:
    They are from the 19 week old golden sexlinks
    or
    the buff Orpington's we got from a breeder four weeks ago. Back then he said they were 10 weeks old, which would make them 14 weeks now. Over of them was bigger than the other two, so I'm wondering, of he got the age wrong for that one.

    They would not be from 14 week old BO - but if you are questioning the age you can post photos and we can easily tell you if they look like 14 week old birds or birds of laying age.

    Thank you so much! Of course, by now we solved the mystery. It are the golden sexlinks. I thought, 19 weeks is quite early to start laying for them. At least from what I read online.
    The Buff Orpington's are 19 weeks now, but haven't started yet. We'll see.
    Again, thank you, I love this forum!
