    Just had to share. I've seen two colors before but this was sooo unexpected! Just how did this happen?

    I'd say it's just a mistake in the progress, but it sure is neat looking!

    [​IMG] I'm not positive who laid this fab egg but suspect it was Mary, my only dark egg laying Marans ( I have 3 Marans but only Mary lays a nice dark egg). I usually get a nice dark speckly egg fm her like the dark end of this one. I really should blow this one and save the shell.

    That is so weird and cool at the same time! I got one this wk that is the color of the middle part of your egg, but it had speckles on it that looked like after she laid it like she had dipped a paint brush in white paint and flicked it at the egg. It was strange looking for sure. I thought, what in the world are they doing while I'm at work - egg crafts??!! [​IMG]
