Mystery Eggs.

Yesterday we had one of our youngest hens lay an egg; but who?  Today, we found another mystery egg. The first one we attributed to one of our two Cuckoo Marans. Todays egg could have been laid by the same hen as the first, or by the second Maran. (If these two eggs come from the same hen, it would represent more variation from a single layer than we are used to seeing.) These Marans arrived at Habitat Farm as chicks, just several days old, back on June 10th (right alongside Buffy). We think they are the layers in question because Marans are known for a darker colored egg. Check these out:
