    I know this sounds weird but I have a chicken I believe my BR hen that is laying eggs lately that are a very pale almost pink color that have light purple spots on them. My husband says he thinks its calcium deposits on the shell. Any ideas and she is not from a breeder she is from TSC. I will try to post a picture of it when i find my camera lol.

    Hello!

    I have a hen (or two) who do the same thing. They tend to do it when I change their feed, but for the life of me, I can't remember what brand I was using when they started with the spots... makes for an interesting conversation piece to see lavendar speckles though, huh? I think they are just trying to dye them for me, lol. [​IMG]
