In my second coop I have 8 hens all 22-23 weeks old. 3 Orpingtons, 2 Welsummers, 2 Silver Laced Wyandottes, and 1 Golden Lace Wyandotte. One of the Orpingtons started laying on Monday and has continued to lay an egg each day since. Today I found this egg which is a little lighter in color then the Orpingtons, but has these purplish spots all over it. It is also a pretty big size egg. I looked up the breeds here on BYC to check their egg colors again, I think it would belong to one of my other Orpingtons possibly. I just wanted to ask on here to see if anyone agreed with me or thought other wise, as it is just a strange egg? Thank you for any help or advise.
Also I forgot to add that I have an Australorp that is 11 months old that has yet to lay an egg. Could it be hers?
