    I have Light brahma chickens, Silver wyndottes, leghorns, red sex links, but never seen them lay a speckled egg.. and i have 2 muscoveys, and 5 peafowl but the peahen is only 8-9 months old...
    Its the egg in the middle any thoughts on who laid this?
    Its got alot more spots/ speckling than the picture shows!

    duck eggs are usually glossy. the one in the center looks very similar to my guinea eggs, so i'm going to guess peahen on that one.

    I would guess its from the wyndottes or sexlink. I get alot of eggs spotted like that. I think peahen eggs should be larger.
