These are the five eggs I collected this afternoon. Can you believe we are up to five a day already? I think there may be three or even four hens laying at this point and my clue is the color and pattern of each egg. I have heard that each hen lays the same patterned/colored egg each time… so it would stand to reason that if we have four different looking eggs; we have four different laying hens.
If you look closely at this picture you may be able to spot the differences, but it is much more obvious in person. The egg on the far left is very pale with a blue tint, the second is medium in color with a rose tint, the third has a handful of large dark brown speckles, and the last two on the far right are covered in tiny white speckles.
Let me know what you think. Have you heard of eggs being distinguishable between hens?
