    i am just wondering..if anyone knows what contributes to egg colouring variation...
    i am sure only 2 of mine are laying...but sometimes I would almost swear it is another chicken
    as is lighter or more brownie spots...
    please know I am not complaining...any egg I pick up is an ever so special perfect work of wonder...

    It's all based on genentics, some chickens "paint" their eggs differently even in the same breed especially in the dark brown egg laying breeds. For me its a helpful tool to know who laid which egg.
