    I get 2 or 3 of these everyday. I think they are from my blue wyandottes. [​IMG]

    Nice eggs! I'd be hatching a bunch of them.

    Yep, I get them from my Wwlsummer, and from a mixed breed lady I get green eggs with brown speckles. Have to be careful as the speckles wash right off!

    Yep. My welsummers, barnevelders, hatchery BR and my Isbar all give me speckled eggs.

    One of my cuckoo marans gives me spotted eggs. Right now she's just coming out of a molt and starting to lay again. I tried to tell her chickens don't molt their first year, but she didn't listen! Out of 5 birds, 4 of them are molting at 10 months and yup, I'm sure of the age.

    Yes I also get spotted eggs. I have Rhode Island Reds, Buff Orpingtons and Cucoo Marans. I tend to get them more often than not and donrae is right, they wash right off!

    I also get speckled eggs. Some have dark brown speckles and another is laying brown eggs with white speckles. Don't know who is laying what due to my work schedule I cn't be home when they are laying in the mornings. I have BA, SLW, RIR, LB, GSL, and BSL. Any ideas as to who might be laying what?
