    Hi Blingchix6,

    No picture came thru, but I have a occasional egg from my black sexlink hen that has purple flecks as well. Its perfectly normal. I love all the unique color combos my hens provide.

    Pretty, and normal. Think of that brown color as being spray painted onto a white eggshell. Sometimes, you'll get flecks of 'overspray'.
