    I've been keeping chickens for about 5 years now, but I think this is the craziest egg I've ever collected! Any guesses how it turned out with this pattern?

    I *think* it's from my welsummer hen who typically lays beautiful fully speckled eggs.

    I believe the egg gets it color in the shell gland. Looks like one part spent a longer time getting color than the other parts. Could be just how it moved through the gland.
