Are there any breeds of chickens that lay eggs with speckles?
I'm just curious?
I have a couple of white wyandotte's that lay speckled egg's but I don't think that's really common.
I have a RIR that lays dark brown eggs with tiny white speckles.
Several of my girls lay speckled eggs. My head hen, a RIR now deceased, laid a very dark brown egg with many speckles. Sometimes the Barred Rock eggs have them. This egg is one I got today from my smaller Welsummer girl-her sister lays a much darker one that is usually without speckles, but this one is so heavily speckled, thought I'd post it for you.
Both of my Welsummers lay lightly speckled eggs
That egg is a very pretty speckled egg.
I just like the speckled eggs, you don't see those in stores.
When I was a young girl, I really thought that the hens had gotten with some wild birds that laid those wildly speckled eggs.
I wonder why no one ever sought that trait for eggs. They sought the different colors, though.
If you want speckled eggs you can't beat welsummers. I got mine from Estes Hatchery. [/img] All of the darker brown, brown speckled, and heavily speckled eggs are from my Welsummers the other eggs are from wyandottes and black australorps
Sometimes my RIR lay speckled eggs, and all of the eggs from my white cochins have been. I love them!
My RIR's lay lightly speckeled now and then.
I've seen speckled Welsummer eggs. Turkeys lay speckled eggs too.
