    My chickens are just starting to lay and im not sure who is laying what. I know my welsummer is laying the brown speckled eggs and i think these 2 belong to my australorp and a light brahma. I just started to getting the light tan eggs with white speckles today and noticed the brahma checking out the nexting boses and doing the egg song today. The black australorp also was in the box. Does this light tan egg with white speckles look like a brahma egg?[​IMG]

    The lighter egg is similar in shade to those produced by my light brahmas.

    White speckles are just areas where the brown "spray paint" didn't settle and cover

    Agrees^^

    Sometimes my brahma eggs have lighter colored speckles that are excessive bloom.
