    Yup. I have one black Jersey Giant that does that. She hasn't figured out a cycle for herself even though she has been laying for 6 months. Sometimes she lays a really dark egg, sometimes half and half, and sometimes a really rough surfaced white egg. The closer together she lays the more I see white. I say she hasn't figured it out yet because sometimes I'll get three to four eggs from her in three days and other times I have to wait weeks for her eggs when all her siblings have a reliable schedule.

    That's very interesting. Do you have any pictures of her eggs?

    I got eggs from one of my birds, a gold sex link, that had a pinky brown top and bottom, and increased white speckles until the white was solid in the middle.

    My cuckoo marans would lay round light brown eggs heavily spotted with very dark brown. Those were my favorites.
