    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!

    I have never seen a muscovy egg, but looking at size and color I would say chicken.

    Not one you named in the possiblities but it looks like a guinea egg, with the speckles and it's shape.

    Mentioned Guinea since it looks like the eggs our guineas lay. [​IMG]

    Prob a Chicken eggs. When I had hens, I would always get speckled eggs.
