    Today I got an egg with raised dark brown specks. Any idea what this is? It's the first time I've seen this.

    Get 'em all the time. Just some character for your eggs. Many of my brown egg layers lay egg with speckles.

    I get those too! They go great with a side of bacon, some hashbrowns, and a biscuit. [​IMG] Scrambled, fried, or sunny-side up!
