    i have 7 chickens. I have a Ameraucana (lays average sized blue eggs),a common white chicken (lays average white eggs) and i know for a fact that they already lay eggs. But i don't know if the 5 other chickens lay eggs yet. They are: Ameruaucana, a polish chicken, a golden laced wyandotte, an unknown black breed (not a black sexlink), and another unknown light brown multi colored breed. But recently i have gotten two small eggs like, a lot smaller than my usual white egg. Please help me find out who layed it :/

    The information was a good start but I am in need of some additional help. I have a variety of chickens but not all are laying eggs, what is the best method to determine who is laying and who is not?

    Thanks

    Look at their head gear. If it's shrunken and pale and dry, they are probably not laying.

    That egg looks a lot like my polish egg. I was told they lay white eggs, but mine is more cream color. It is also smaller than all my other large fowl eggs.
