    Does anyone else have a Cochin that lays speckled eggs? Is that normal?

    This is the egg:[​IMG]

    And this is the little princess it came from, she just started laying eggs a couple weeks ago.

    Each chicken will lay an egg that is distinctly her own, some have speckled, if you pay attention to such things you can identify everyone's eggs by color, shape and individual differences. Cute.

    one of my buffs lays a speckled egg every third egg or so.

    Cute little chicken!
