    Hi. I have started getting eggs from my pullets, and I'm stumped on who is laying which egg.
    The egg on the far left is from my Buff Orpington that I put in the picture for size and color comparison. She's over a year old, so is obviously laying large eggs.
    I've got a Silver Laced Wyandotte, a Barred Rock, a Black Sex Link and a Red Sex Link (was supposed to be a RIR, but has white on the tip of her tail, so we were told she's a RSL).

    Any of your layers could have layed those eggs! The colors are consistant for any of the breeds that you have listed there.

    I got one today that was the size of my BO's eggs, but about the color of the third one from the left. It's my first full sized egg from my babies. [​IMG]

    If you want to know which bird is laying which eggs, put some different colored food coloring on their vent.
