    Hi!
    I have 6 chickens and one of them started to lay last week. We got two eggs today and this was one of them. It could be an egg from the chicken that was laying and it could be an egg from another chicken. But despite who laid it the color is all patchy. This picture was taken after the egg was washed. Any ideas why the color might be this way?
    Thanks!
