Welcome to BYC -
Sounds like a glitch in the "paint sprayer" - brown eggs are actually white eggs with brown pigment that is applied to the outside (look at the inside of a brown egg shell and you'll see white shell -- blue/green egg shells are colored throughout so if you look on the inside of a blue or green shell you'll see the same color as is on the outside) - the application is not always smooth so you'll see light spots, dark spots, etc in the finished product from time to time.
