    I have a Welsummer and some of her eggs are speckled. She's inconsistent. Sometimes it's so many tiny speckles that the egg looks all one color, like a light coat of spray paint. Other times it's blotches.

    some of my cochins have speckeled eggs, I don't think it's a breed thing though, more of an individual chicken thing [​IMG]

    Some of the welsummer eggs in my bator are speckled.

    And my Barred Rock occasionally lays a speckled egg. It's her normal light beige egg, but looks like someone splattered lavendar paint on it. Got one of those today.
