    My Americauna hen lays eggs just like that! Sometimes the spots are raised. Cool!

    I get those from one of my Delaware hens and a friend gets a few from his LG cochins - no worries - they are pretty i think!

    I got a LOT of similar speckles as my partridge Marans came back into lay after brooding and raising a chick. The spots were purple, like I had spattered them with BluKote. Then as her eggs got dark again the spots disappeared.
