    I got a light brown egg with dark speckles today. I have welsummers, black copper marans, mottled java, columbian wyandotte, and silver laced wyandotte. Who could lay this egg?

    Our BCMs give us speckled eggs when their sprayers aren't working quite right. I think the dark spots are the shade they'd lay IF the sprayers would work correctly.

    Our SLW's lay medium brown eggs with dark purplish-brown spots on them, very fine. They are very shy layers, too! And not a peep from them while laying, unlike the RIRs and the BO's.

    Any of the birds mentioned could potentially lay the speckled egg!

    I love speckled eggs.
