I have BO's, so we get brown eggs. We have 5 chickens and are averaging 3 eggs per day (I think 2 still aren't laying - the first eggs came 5 weeks ago). Today I got an egg that was speckled all over with reddish-brown spots. I washed it and most of them rubbed off under the water, along with some of the color. The egg was much lighter after I washed it. Is this just pigment?
I'm crazy about being worried that they have a disease or mites or lice or something. I'm like that with my kids too LOL
Normal? (the egg, not me!)
