I have rhode island reds and americanas. I woke up this morning to a lovely brown speckled egg with reddish brown spots. My hens just started laying and I haven't gotten a colored egg yet. I'm wondering if it's possible that one of my hens is not what it appears to be, or if it is common for either of these breeds to lay brown speckled eggs. I'd download pictures but my computer isn't allowing me to download pictures right now for some reason.
