    I've never heard of one that lays spotted eggs. Doesn't mean there isn't, though.

    Spotted? Is it a regular thing? None that I know of. What color is it?

    Oh sorry, I need to read better. None that I know of lay spotted eggs. Cayugas can lay a black egg but it is just the bloom that is colored and if scrubbed off they are actually white. My cayuga lays a greenish egg that is getting lighter as she lays.

    My mallards lay pretty olive green eggs. No spots, though, except for the mud.
