    I also have a Plymouth Rock pullet, sizzle pullet, 2 australorps, Sussex, a leghorn and a farm mix all that havnt laid since I brought them
    I'm very curious too know which hen it could be as she laid away from the nesting boxes

    Your Isa Brown and RIR/Isa Brown hen should lay brown eggs.
    What kind of Plymouth Rock do you have? Plymouth Rock is just the breed name there are different varieties including barred, white, and etc. . .
    Australorps- brown eggs
    Sussex eggs- Cream to light brown colored
    Leghorn- White eggs
    Farm mix- ? Depends on what kind of mix she is

    The one 2nd in the first pic is what my rir lays I think??
    These bottoms eggs I'm curious about because if it was my sussex their very very small and she's my biggest hen she's as big as my rooster ?
    My Plymouth Rock is a light Barred I think

    Barred Rocks lay brown eggs as well, the best way to know who's laying which eggs is to catch them while they are doing it. :)

    Sussex lay light colored eggs, and they could just be small being first eggs. I think their eggs aren't huge overall, like medium size.
    The sizzle--could be hers, depends on what made the sizzle. Those eggs look pretty close to my bantam cochin eggs.
    Farm mix--all bets are off!

    I figured the farm mix u won't know till I see her lay one hahaha!! She's so unique the could be rainbow!! ;)
    I'm going to steak the area out haha!! It's under my balcony she's laid so I'll keep checking see if I catch one at it!!

    I'm not sure what made my sizzle I was told she was a silky until I posted a photo here and was told she's a sizzle (new to the chicken family)
