    A few of my hens produce decorated eggs fairly regularly. My Barred rocks in particular can lay some very speckled eggs.

    I get white speckles from time to time...every once in awhile I'll get dark spots on my darkest eggs, but I have one hen that always lays a light brown egg with white speckles.

    You know, if you look at it real close and forget it is an egg it kinda looks the the surface of Mars.
