No, Orpintons tend to have tan eggs and rocks tend to have brown eggs with a pink tint. Sometimes they can be the same hue depending... but the rocks definitely look pinkish under the right light! I tried taking a photo but my camera doesn't pick up on it right.... but I hope this helps anyway.
These eggs are more tan than brown but I have only seen the rock laying in the nest and sitting on eggs.. Hmmmmm. If anyone has a pic of partridge rock eggs please share. I'm totally confused right now :/
I'll try and take a photo tomorrow in natural sunlight. My camera really hates indoor lighting. If these are their first eggs they might all be tan/light. Mine seem to have those early on in their cycle. Just because the rock is broody doesn't mean she's the one laying them but she could be. If you get two eggs a day for two days straight I'd say it's a safe bet they're both laying.
Thanks weelittlechicken. I got the Orpington and the rock from the same guy. When I got them he claimed the Orpington was laying and the rock was about to. But I have never seen the Orpington in the nest and she wasn't very big when I got her. The partridge I have seen In The nest and a couple hours later there's an egg. So I always assumed it was her. I didn't get any eggs for the first couple weeks that I got them and then about 2 weeks ago I started getting my first eggs. I'm not sure if either chicken was actually already a layer when I got them. So I'm not sure if these are their first eggs or not.
Well I caught my buff Orpington laying an egg in the nest today. And the eggs that I have been eating have the bullseye on them. If I keep the eggs in the nest how will I know if they will be able to be hatched. I mean does the chicken have to sit on them for a certain amount of time a day for them to continue to be viable? Any help appreciated
