    its not really a problem as far as i can see. someone said something like this would happen if i gave my hens more greens like green lettuce. my brown eggs have even darker brown spots its vary weird. i just want to now some other reasons this might happen and are they safe to eat. [​IMG]

    sometimes eggs have speckles.
    It's just shell color thats all.
    White, tan, brown, darkbrown, blue, green, olive, and pink, its all the same on the inside.
