    In my experience individuals within many breeds lay speckled eggs, but no particular breed where all of the hens lay speckled eggs. Anybody know of one from anywhere?

    I can't say...I ordered two Cuckoo Marans from McMurray - they lay a pretty dark (not chocolate colored) egg and they always have dark specks and spots. Can't say for all CMs - just the two I have.
