    Quote:I have 13 pullets from Ideal hatchery...all just reaching laying age. Super healthy and good looking birds, right from the start!

    The dark, speckled egg is such a mystery. I bought 3 Black Sexlinks from a local farmer, and Buttercup (who laid that egg) looks nothing like a sexlink, but did in fact come from a RIR and barred rock. She ended up being striped like a rock, but yellowish and black stripes. SO WEIRD. And to top it all off, her sisters lay very light, cream eggs. I swear she thinks she is a Marans, or something. Her eggs really do look coppery. [​IMG]

    Wow! Congratulations! That is an awesome egg! I love the various colors of egg you have ... a photo like that is what inspired me to get chickens. This would make a great calendar photo.
