Default Speckled eggs

I'm not sure who's laying it, according to my research none of them, but we have a girl who lays them consistently. Isn't it pretty!

I've seen Rhode Islands occasionally throw those. I think they are prettier than the blue ones!

Mine like the speckled one is from my RIR's. Got a pretty really speckled one yesterday that I'm going to blow the yolk out of and save. I have a little basket of first eggs, funny shaped eggs, little eggs, biggest ever eggs (6 1/8" round, 3" long, 3.4 oz.), and just plain pretty eggs. I weigh them, measure them, and write on them the date & who's it was if I know. Still waiting for my first EE egg. So far Josie is holding out on me.

We've got a black hen with some red splashed on her breast that lays very large speckled eggs like that. I've got about a half dozen in the incubator that should be hatching about Sunday. It took us a while to figure out which hen was laying them.

I used to get those from one of my RIR hens, I have sense lost her. She laid really pretty brown and speckled eggs. I wished I had thought about it back then to also save the eggs, I would have blown them out as well, and hung them on my christmas tree. I am going to start collecting eggs that have good colors and blow them out and decorate then our Christmas tree.

My Welsummer lays those super speckled eggs, my RIR sometimes has some speckles on hers - but never as much as the Welsummer.
