    [​IMG] My red sex link lays multi-colored eggs, too. They range from cream to dark brown. We've gotten many light brown with dark brown spots and dark brown with light spots. But I don't think I've ever seen one quite like that!!!

    I get some like that from my marans once in a while. What do I make of it? I would make a fried egg sandwich.[​IMG]

    I've gotten the spotted ones, too, but this is definitely a first! LOL It's so perfectly 1/2 and 1/2! [​IMG]

    A fried egg sandwich sounds great! [​IMG]

    I'd blow it and paint henna on it! That's a super sweet craft specimen right there!

    It looks like it spent some extra time in the oviduct and one half was under the sprayer too long! [​IMG] BTW, I have no idea, but I'm sure it will be delish!
