I know its been a very very very long time since I've been all and I can't thank everyone enough for everything I have learned from this site. Its the best. I have 28 chickens know. Nice variety of Buffs, Brahms, Astrolurps, Barred and a mixed or reds I hatched myself which I think are all Rhode Islands except for one red that has these neat tuffs of feathers at her ears and she lays green eggs. Have no idea what she is. She was hatch from eggs I bought from a lady. My question is, I haven't had any roosters around since middle of Sept. and I don't believe any of my chickens were even laying yet then. I did have what I know for sure were fertilized eggs but the spots on the yolks weren't that big so I didn't concern myself. Well I have a lot more of my chickens laying now. Today I collected the most eggs so far. 14 eggs. Quite proud of my flock. I have notice every now and then I'm getting a speck of something and I think its in the white of the egg not the yolk. Does anyone know what this could be? I sure the eggs are clean so its not coming off the shells outside. I have been washing my eggs.
