    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Potentially, the egg could be from any of your hens since all of them are brown egg layers, but in my experience, the heavy number of dark brown speckles on the egg is more common with the Red Sex Links than with the Australorp or the Light Brahma. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck in getting more eggs.

    Beautiful egg, what a great start [​IMG] You really should take a picture of it , double mat it and nice frame so your relatives will really think you are nuts. But, we would really enjoy the photo. You only get once chance at a FIRST egg.
