2fathens,

Has yours stopped the white speckles?  Mine seem to have stopped.  I think for me it was one of my hens first couple eggs.  My 4 are all laying now and have been giving me 4 eggs each morning for the past 4 or 5 days.  I was getting the speckled eggs before that.  So, it might just have been the first couple eggs.
