    I have a barred rock-(but this egg is darker than what I've seen so far of barred rocks), a golden sex link, two red sex links and one black sex link pullet.

    I can't tell from here. I usually take note of who likes which nest-box - and what time they tend to lay... mine seem to have different hours for each of 'em. Then I go check who's just left the nest for a few days. That usually helps me make a good guess as to who's laying what.
    Nice color, though! If you didn't tell me what you had - I'd be guessing Welsummer egg!

    These are older pictures of them. They are now all red faced and red combed:

    This is the Golden Sex Link.

    This is the Red Sex Link. I have two of them.

    And you can see the Black Sex link in this one...along with my two RIR's that I know don't lay that...plus they has already laid theirs. But like I said, these pictures are old...they are all red faced and red combed now.

    My two RSLs lay eggs that color. My BRs eggs are a lighter shade.
