I have two pullets that could be laying now. One of them has started laying but not sure which one. One is a German Bielefelder and the other, I think is a Lavender Orp (as a chick the breeder claimed it was a blue maran; WRONG, WRONG, WRONG). Anyway, one of these pullets just started laying and I suspect its the Bielefelder. The eggs are large, medium brown with some speckling. Based on what I have read, neither of these breeds are supposed to lay speckled eggs. Are Welsummers foundation stock for the Bielefelder breed, and could this one could be a Welsummer throw back causing it to lay speckled eggs??? Does anyone have any information or insights into this? Thanks.
