    I'm almost completely sure this egg is from my Silverlaced Wyandotte. It's her second egg; the first was brown with white specks. Spots on eggs are normal, right? These are raised, like paint spatters. But are they normal for Wyandottes? And green? Thanks for any insight! Egg in question on the left. Egg on right: Buff Orpington Egg below: Silkie.

    I believe they're just calcium deposits. :) Those are completely normal.

    Thanks! One less thing to worry about. :)

    I wonder if she'll lay eggswith other colors of spots? ;-)
