    AussieSharon has pics of hers. Hopefully she will see this thread and post pictures for you! The Wellie eggs that I hatched my babies from were jumbo sized, terra cotta to dk. brown in color, with speckles all over them! They were gorgeous! I can't wait for my two to start laying! [​IMG]

    Here is a pic of some of mine. I think the pic lightens them up some, they seem darker in person.

    My girl lays one without them, then she'll lay one all speckled. Same hen.
