    So I went to let out my chickens this morning and found these:

    I'm not sure who could have laid them, I thought I had all white egg layers. They were under my mottled houdans, but I also have 2 each of leghorns, phoenix, white faced black spanish, polish, white rock, bantam cochins, and silver sebright. They seem too big to be from the bantams. Any ideas? I'm so happy to finally have eggs![​IMG] They were all 4 months old last week.

    Oh I bet it is the white rocks! I know the Barred rocks lay brown eggs but I figured the White ones would lay white eggs. They seem pretty "mature" too so I'll bet it's them.
    Thanks!

    Beautiful. Bet they'll taste great. Are you going to save the shells (dgd made us blow the eggs out to save shells so we had scrambled eggs first.)[​IMG]
