Have you ever gotten a two-tone egg?

    I found an egg in our coop this morning that is half brown and half cream colored. Not sure the picture attached.

    Oh, yes. Do try to post that again. I'd love to see it.

    I get an egg with freckles on it from time to time. But never two toned.

    I have a hen that lays eggs just like that.

    Yeah, every once in awhile Ill get an egg that is darker on the bigger end and the color gets really light at the pointy end. Im not sure who lays those. Its kinda cool- got one the other day and my son thought there was something wrong with the egg. I just told him there was a hiccup in the paint deptartment of the hen! [​IMG]
