    Ok, my ladies started laying this week. One of them makes it easy for me. Lulu (Ameraucana) tints them blue for me. The other two - Plymouth Barred Rock and Buff Orp are both laying brown eggs as expected, but whos is whos? One of them is slightly darker brown and larger. Any ideas if that lends itself to one of those two breeds?

    The mystery of who's naughty and who's nice. (pretty chickens by the way, I like that picture).

    I have two BPRs and their eggs are lighter brown than my gold sex-link. One BPR is really light and sometimes even speckled. So -- based on that very limited viewpoint, I would say that the BPR has lighter of the two brown eggs. It's great when the colors are different because once you know for sure, you will know who is laying.

    Our barred rocks' eggs are a light pinkish brown. Hope that helps!
