    I got my first egg today! I'm not 100% sure who's it is, but that's okay. (I have a Lavendar Orpington, a Marans and an Easter Egger)

    Take a look!

    Woo hoo! Isn't it grand! [​IMG]
    What color is it? That should be a clue as to who laid it. Do you have a pic?

    Yeah I posted the link to the photo. It's light brown. My Marans hangs out in the spot I found it, but it's not the right color for her.

    The easter egger should lay green eggs, the maran dark eggs, so it was probably your Lavender Orpington!

    From what I have read, I think Marans lay light brown eggs that get a darker brown as the birds mature and lay more. Someone correct me if I am wrong. It might be the Maran? [​IMG]
