    So I was washing my eggs today and noticed that one of them was speckled. It was the exact same color (a very light brown) as all the others except it had very small dark brown specks spread out all over it. This is the first speckled egg ive had, I own a red breasted old english bantam hen, a barred rock, and a hen that I have no clue what she is. Could anyone tell me if my OEGB hen or barred rock could have laid the speckled egg????
