    What is the difference in snowflake and regular speckled? Just a whiter/lighter color?

    The snowflakes are solid white with black flakes throughout their body, they are a totally different color than the regular mexican speckled. I have the regular mexican speckled and the snowflakes. The snowflakes are beautiful. Unfortunally I do not know how to post pictures on here.​

    Quote:Were the eggs white, if so they were not A & M, Bobs do come in white. The white bobs have been around for many years. The white mexican speckled only been around about two years.

    Saw some on eggbid for 50.00 each. They are rare!!!
