    So I checked on the hens this evening, and I had a weirdly colored egg. It was like a white egg with yellow splotches that didn't wash off. Was this a hen's first egg, or what?? I am confused and just want to make sure everything is okay with the henny henn hens....

    Welcome to BYC-

    if these are new layers it might just be a new egg fluke- can you post a picture?

    I'm not sure what you mean. Was the egg a white egg, but seemed to have yellow speckles on the shell? Were they raised? Or were they the color of yolk? What kind of hens do you have and how old?
    Yes, a picture would help!

    Based on what you've described, I'd say one of your girls just had a bad day is all. [​IMG] We all have 'em once in awhile, I guess.

    I bet you have an egg eater or someone cracked the egg and it got on that egg and dried.
