    Well I got an Easter egg and I don't have EE birds. Take a look at the pic and tell me what you think.

    Not an EE egg-unless she was supposed to be an EE with a stright comb? IDK how that happens but I have seen it in my hens. The only difference is that mine has a few shades to them-once in a blue moon-makes me want to blow those eggs and keep them:)

    it is pink and brown, I thought my kids were half dipping eggs in the Easter dye. Only one thing, we don't have any.

    I found an egg like that this summer too. She laid it during a WICKED heat spell around here (upper 90s & HUMID). My thought was that she held it up for a while, not wanting to go sit in a hot nest box, so it stayed in the "painting" section of her reproductive tract a little longer for half the egg. I have nothing to back that up, it just sounded plausible to me. The egg was ginormous to boot!

    One of our eggs was 2 toned as well, they've only been laying a week and a half. I just thought it was newbie weirdness.
