    I've never seen one of these before! But after looking through some older posts, I guess they are not all that unusual. It does look exactly like it was dipped in dye for Easter.

    I had one of those the other day, but the colors were switched so more of the egg was white. I can't recall which breed laid it, but I am going to try and hatch it out , hope it's a pullet.

    It was a mixed red, maybe a Golden Comet, but really first egg I've ever seen like that.

    Quote:My RIR does this too, but her's sometimes have a white stripe down the middle, or like yours half is pale and half is darker. She sometimes lays thin shelled eggs, or even shell less eggs too. None of my other hens have that problem, so I think it's just her. They have oyster shell, get meal worms, grass, weeds etc ... along with their feed.
