    I have 3 Easter Eggers and one as far as I know is not laying. At one point though I was getting 3 blue eggs a Day along with the rest. I've been frequently checking for eggs as I am going to incubate soon and today I caught one of my EE's in the act. She ran away and I found this small tan egg under her, very warm. I'm not sure if she was sitting on it or had just laid it. Then almond faverolle who lays similar eggs came running in as she ran out and over to the nest. Also at one point I found a blue egg under one of my barred rocks that seemed freshly laid. Who did this egg maybe come from?! [​IMG]

    My bet would be the Favorelle. I don't have barred rocks so not sure what type egg they lay but that looks pretty much like my favorelles. Nqot much telling. Fun puzzle to have though.:D

    We've got one Australorp who loves to take credit for all sorts of eggs. She lays lovely brown eggs, but she'll claim any color.:yiipchick
