    So we have a mystery egg we received yesterday with some other eggs to hatch we identified most of them based on the colors and what breeds we were told they could be but there is one that doesn't really match up with the breeds. So what do you guys think?

    This is a close up of the egg its hard to see these speckles in the other pictures but it has them all over some more faint then others



    These are the breeds we were told they could be:
    Black Copper Maran
    Cuckoo Maran
    Golden Lakenvelder
    Heritage Barred Rock
    Welsummer
    Blue Lace Red Wyandotte

    Don't consider this as in any way authoritative, but I've had Barred Rocks that laid eggs like that.[​IMG]

    always changing
    Sometimes my eggs come out like that, too.
    I have a barred rock and a RI that lay brown eggs.

    Well if its a barred rock that would be awesome, we have one barred rock already and she is such a great layer! we have never had her lay an egg like that so thats why we just didn't think it was the barred rock. Some people on another post when we described it said it may be a turkey egg but we hadn't put any pictures. Hoping for a chicken though lol!
