    Anyone have any pictures of eggs from a Speckeld Sussex Hen??? I have 3 that are about 15 weeks old and am just wondering what their eggs look like!

    One of mine from midApril hatch just started laying and it is very lightly tinted brown. Sorry I can't give you a picture though--I ate the egg.

    I am waiting for mine to lay her first egg, any day, hopefully. From the research I've done, they lay a tinted egg.

    The lighter colored eggs are from our Speckled Sussex, the darker from Buff Orpingtons. The Speckled's are usually a little smaller but, would still considered large I think.

    That's a beautiful basket of produce and eggs -- you have quite a lot to be proud of there.
