Okay... so I have two (possibly 3) pullets that started laying about 2-3 weeks ago. I get 2 eggs/day most days (which I why I think 3 of them are laying). Occasionally I only get one or zero eggs, but that's less than half the time. Today, I got 2 eggs, but one was speckled. It didn't look speckled until I washed it off--when the speckles got really dark. As soon as the egg dried, I had to REALLY look to see the speckles (which blended in with the light brown shell). Then I scratched at the speckles. It took a little doing, but they came off!! I showed dh who thinks maybe this is a first egg from one of the other ladies (we have 9 total) and that the speckles are blood? Or could it be a problem...??
